Dr Cass (MARIBYRNONG, VICTORIA) (Minister for the Environment and Conservation) - The answer to the right honourable member's question is as follows:

I will arrange for a copy of this material to be made available to the right honourable member. The material is currently being revised and I will arrange for a copy of the revised documents to be made available to the right honourable member and the Parliamentary Library.

(2)   No. The information is not readily available.
