Ms KERNOT (2:00 PM) —My question is to the Minister for Employment Services. Minister, when were you, your office or your department first made aware of allegations concerning the improper use by Job Network providers of their own labour hire companies to receive a payment from the government for placing people into phantom jobs? Minister, who made these allegations and on what dates?

Mr BROUGH (Minister for Employment Services) —I thank the member for Dickson for her question. Allegations were made at a Senate estimates hearing and I have asked my department to make full inquiries into these issues. When that inquiry has been completed, I will obviously be making statements to that effect.
