Senator RUSTON (South AustraliaAssistant Minister for International Development and the Pacific) (16:07): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator RUSTON: The KPMG report is a cabinet confidential document that has informed the decisions of government on this matter. The government will not undermine the longstanding principle of cabinet confidentiality and reveal the deliberations of cabinet on this matter. The independent evaluation assessed whether the additional staffing arrangements were working effectively, and determined that they were.

The PRESIDENT: The question is that motion No. 1194 be agreed to.

Question agreed to.
