(Question No. 1467)


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

Has the Government been acquainted with the request for staffing for ABCI on the basis that the full establishment and operation of the drug data base, as approved in May 1985, was being delayed through lack of support staff; if so, when will the positions be filled.


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

The Government is aware of the request for resources additional to the $1.5m already provided. Further action must await the outcome of consideration of development options by the Australian Police Ministers' Council.
