Mr TURNBULL (2:45 PM) —My question is to the Treasurer. Was the Treasurer aware prior to giving his answer yesterday that the government had made a decision to appoint Mr Steve Bracks to head a major review of the car industry?

Mr SWAN (Treasurer) —I welcome the question. The decision to formally appoint Mr Bracks was taken last night by the minister. Let me say, the appointment of Mr Bracks is a fine appointment. Let me also say that we take this industry very seriously. A lot of jobs are involved in this industry and there are very big challenges. This review is very important and it will receive the full backing of the government.
