Senator BOLKUS (Minister for Immigration and Ethnic Affairs and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Multicultural Affairs) (7.36 p.m.) —At present it is under review by the Ministerial Council on Corporations. When issues are before that council it is very hard to give a definite date as to what will come out of its deliberations. I do not think I can be any more specific than that.

Senator Watson —Has the government not imposed on the council any time limit as to its deliberations?

Senator BOLKUS —No, but those concerned obviously recognise that there is an interest in this matter on the part of both the government and opposition. I hope that interest is driving them on to a speedy assessment. (Quorum formed)
