Mr CREAN (Minister for Trade) (11:13 AM) —This has already been answered in the Senate estimates. These have been put out to tender, so there is no decision about any closures at this point in time. I know those on the other side want to point out any negatives they can find concerning resource allocation. We want to get a more efficient allocation. We want to develop more effective partnerships and we want those partnerships to properly reflect the servicing of the particular regions in question. We know that there are opportunities out there. We know people need assistance. We are committed to giving them that assistance and we will let the member know in due course what the outcome of that rearrangement is.

Proposed expenditure agreed to.
