Dr EMERSON (RankinMinister for Trade and Competitiveness, Minister for Tertiary Education, Skills, Science and Research and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister on Asian Century Policy) (16:11): No, I cannot talk to the minister about that in terms of consultation with the CSIRO industry statement because the CSIRO would have been involved in work on industry policy, as they have done in the past and as they will be in the future. Given that the carriage, as the shadow minister knows very well, of the industry statement is actually by Minister Combet, perhaps it might have been sensible for the member for Indi to provide that question to Minister Combet. Maybe a question on notice would have been a more satisfactory approach to this issue.
