(Question No. 1465)

Senator Archer asked the Minister representing the Special Minister of State, upon notice, on 23 October 1986:

Was there any allocation of staff made to ABCI at the request of the Department of Special Minister of State that was subsequently overturned by the Department of Finance.

Senator Tate —The answer to the honourable senator's question is as follows:

Staff allocation in the Public Service is based on approved Average Operative Staffing Levels so it is difficult to conceive of circumstances in which the answer would be ``yes'' to this type of question.
