Senator MASON (Queensland) (16:02): Minister, you would be aware that the Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research has completed the Focusing Australia's Publicly Funded Research Review. I am sure you are aware of that. The review was undertaken from February to July 2011. It examined a number of issues in regard to the nature and utility of Australia's publicly funded research arrangements, with a particular focus on priority setting. So I ask this as my introductory question: how will the government's response to this bill affect the operation of the Australian Research Council in relation to the Focusing Australia's Publicly Funded Research Review?
