Senator GRIMES (Minister for Social Security)(11.46) —Page 4 of the Estimates Committee Hansard of 30 April 1984 indicates that Senator Bjelke- Petersen asked:

I do not know that the Minister's officers would know whether the Department or the Minister's office employs any consultants on a full time basis.

The response was that most consultants engaged to work for the Department or the Minister's office are engaged on a full time basis for a specific period. None of those consultants could be classed as lobbyists. Details of all consultants and contractors for services engaged since 1 April 1983 were provided, and a large sheet was attached. The document referred to Mr D. Ritchie, Bato Reid, Computer Power, SRI International, W. D. Scott and Co., and Ms M. Hunter. Details of their locations and their costs were provided. That is in the material that has been provided.
