Senator GRIMES (Minister for Community Services)(11.36) —The Foundation is clearly not the only body. The Foundation was set up by a grant of $2m, I think, in 1979 or 1980. It raises money itself; it has considerable investment income. Clearly, that is not the only area of accident prevention in which the Government is involved. All the hospitals and State health departments are involved. The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons has a long-standing accident research group going. I will see whether, within reason, we can get out details of the various amounts of money which are allocated by the Federal Government to the various bodies. Provided it will not tie down several public servants for several weeks, I will see whether I can get the information for Senator Vigor.
