Senator MILLINER (QUEENSLAND) -I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Labor and Immigration: Is it a fact that more approvals have been announced under the regional employment development scheme? Has the State of Queensland benefited from the latest announcement?

Senator BISHOP -The Minister for Labor and Immigration yesterday announced a number of approvals in respect of Queensland. Some 60 projects have now been given provisional approval. Until that announcement was made yesterday there was a total of 42 projects which had been approved. The total cost of these projects will be $2m. Of that amount almost $ 1.75m was provided by the Government. The measures are designed to assist not only local councils but also sporting bodies etc.
