Senator GRIMES (Minister for Community Services)(9.59) —I gather from the advisers here that the award is that a darg is set for so much work to be done. As the honourable senator knows, in the Australian Capital Territory and other places they run like mad and get finished early. The award covers the amount of work they do rather than the number of hours they work. I am not sure about the long service provisions. I know that there has been a dispute about that recently.
