Senator NEWMAN(6.03) —I thank the Minister for his answer but I think it reveals that he does not really understand what has happened with the DESINE project and therefore clearly does not understand the implications. I will come to that later. A question was taken on notice which I will repeat now so that I can obtain the answer. Since the Department has stated that the merits of the DESINE solution versus the cost on project terms will be weighed on an individual basis, can the Minister advise me of the factors and issues that will be taken into account in determining the balance?
