Senator GARETH EVANS (Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade)(12.08) —I cannot answer the detailed questions Senator Walters puts to me. I will ensure that she gets an answer. The purpose of the National Media Liaison Service, as the name implies, is to ensure that the media are made fully aware of what is happening in relation to Government program announcements and to ensure, in turn, that the Government is made fully aware of what appears in the media, both electronic and print, covering the whole range of Government activities and policy issues to which the Government may be obliged to respond. Beyond that, I will be happy to ensure that Senator Walters gets an answer to her specific question.
