Senator VIGOR(5.39) —I would like to know how often details of successful projects will be published so that people in the tourist industry can see what types of ventures are attracting support. Is there any intention to publish material on how the Australian Tourist Commission will apply the validity test, which was mentioned both in the guidelines, of which I have a copy, and in the replies given to the Estimates Committee D? In what way will the Australian Tourist Commission approach the market and in what way will that approach be made clear to the tourist industry? Are we to expect any further guidelines other than the document which has just been shown to us in the Senate? This contains fairly vague lists of criteria without any weightings being given to particular criteria. Is any more detailed material likely to be issued other than the booklet `Overseas Promotion Scheme Guidelines' which has been distributed to potential applicants?
