Senator ZAKHAROV —My question is directed to the Leader of the Government in the Senate in the absence of the Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Status of Women. What evidence is available that the Government's affirmative action legislation has helped women not only to enter the work force but also to gain access to promotion?

Senator BUTTON —I am sure there is ample evidence of the success of the affirmative action program. The difficulty is that I do not have it with me today. I will take the question on notice and provide the answer as soon as I can.
