Senator NETTLE (1:01 PM) —I raised these issues in my contribution to the second reading debate; I note that you were not the minister on duty at the time. I wanted to get some more information, so I shall try some other questions. The second reading contribution by the minister raised two questions for me. He outlined that this $1 billion was to be used for tsunami relief efforts in communities. My understanding of the Prime Minister’s statement when the announcement was made was that this money would contribute to not only tsunami relief efforts but other projects in Indonesia. Because the minister’s statement in his second reading contribution differed from the Prime Minister’s statement, I wanted to seek some clarification on that issue.
