Senator VIGOR(9.07) —Earlier this year there was apparently quite a deal of bureaucratic dispute about how to develop a national chemical notification and assessment scheme. Eventually, I understand, a ministerial committee was formed to determine what type of scheme would result. I would be very grateful if the Minister for Finance (Senator Walsh) could give me some information on where the matter now stands with respect to such a national chemical notification and assessment scheme. We have not heard anything since the ministerial committee was set up.
