Senator TATE (Minister for Justice)(11.18) —If I understand correctly, I am told that 1 January is a very critical date. Apparently some 2,000 grants from 1987-88 become due for acquittal on 1 January 1989. I seem to recall that in other Estimates committees we talked about a six-month lag and that is why there is such a disparity-on 1 January 1989 the 1987-88 grants were due for acquittal.
