Senator RUSTON (South AustraliaAssistant Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources) (10:38): Senator Rice, obviously, the criteria of the particular loans will determine the eligibility criteria for access to these particular loans. As I said earlier to Senator Brown, there is quite an extensive consultation going on at the moment in terms of developing the criteria both in the operating mandate in the broader terms of eligibility, which is the consultation that is currently being undertaken, and also in relation to any direction that comes from the minister. Obviously, the criteria under which accessibility of the particular loan would be available would be determined. In terms of the operating mandate, it is an instrument to be tabled in the parliament.
