Senator WONG (Minister for Climate Change and Water) (6:06 PM) —I thought it might be useful to give Senator Siewert a brief response on the resourcing issue. I am advised that the funding of all parts of the native title system has historically been reviewed every four years and the last review occurred in 2008. The senator may be aware that, as a result of that, the government allocated an additional $55 million over four years to the native title system. It is the government’s expectation that there will be further such reviews but as yet the timing of those has not been determined.
