Senator FIFIELD (VictoriaMinister for Communications, Minister for the Arts and Deputy Leader of the Government in the Senate) (10:32): I can't provide an estimate as to the number of applications that will be forthcoming. That's something that is beyond my knowledge, and it is up to each individual media organisation to assess whether they're eligible to make application and whether they wish to make application. But we are confident that the $2.1 million that is part of the $50 million for the Regional and Small Publishers Innovation Fund will be appropriate to administer the applications that are received, and ACMA is also of that view.
