Senator JESSOP (South Australia) -I would just like to add something to what has been said already about this matter. I ask the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs (Senator Cavanagh) whether I am correct in assuming that a suite of offices was or is being leased by the Department of Aboriginal Affairs in Woden at a cost of $155,000 a year for the use, as I understand it, of Applied Ecology Pty Ltd and as an office for the turtle farm project. I would like the Minister to inform me what is to be done with the suite of offices? Will the suite still be required for the Department's use in view of the uncertainty of the turtle farm project? Can the Minister tell me whether the expenditure of $155,000 a year for the leasing of the suite of offices was, in fact, unnecessary?
