Senator GRIMES (Minister for Community Services)(10.10) —I cannot answer that question for Senator Peter Rae. Whether the Auditor-General made such a statement to the Parliament is not within the knowledge of my advisers here or of me because the Auditor-General comes under the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet. That question would more appropriately be answered when we consider that Department. I do not know how else I can answer that question. Apparently the Auditor-General said he would make such a statement but whether or not he has done so is up to people who read his report to decide and up to the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet to advise us.
