Senator GARETH EVANS (Minister for Resources and Energy)(4.27) —This is being considered by the Joint Select Committee on Video Material. As I understand it, it has just finished producing the first part of its report. I am not sure when it will actually be tabled. The Government is simply awaiting that report before moving further in regard to any of the various matters which people keep wanting to raise on this subject. That is the position which we foreshadowed a considerable time ago. Accordingly, the Parliament is in the position of determining the Executive Government timetable. If Senator Vigor wants to move things along a bit faster, I suggest that he give his colleagues on the Committee a nudge.

Proposed expenditure agreed to.

Department of the Special Minister of State

Proposed expenditure, $278,939,000.
