Senator KNOWLES —I direct my question to the Minister representing the Minister for Arts, Heritage and Environment. Yesterday all senators and members received a copy of the Australian Film Commission's annual report. Is the Minister able to advise the Senate what is the distribution of the Australian Film Commission's annual report? How many of the 108-page reports, which included full colour photographs and seven colour graphics were printed and at what cost? How many 14-minute rather lavish and well-produced videos were made and at what cost, including the cost of the tapes? Does the Minister consider that such extravagance in the current economic climate is appropriate?

Senator RYAN —I do not have that information with me. I suggest that the honourable senator put the question on notice.
