Senator ROBERT RAY (Minister for Immigration, Local Government and Ethnic Affairs)(10.08) —I will put that question on notice. When negotiations were going on to re-open this section of the Estimates Committee they were carried only on the basis of the child support scheme and not on the opening of new areas. Senator Walters should not shake her head because I made those arrangements. I discussed it with the Opposition. There was no agreement to re-open this particular area. However, Senator Walters has asked the question and I will place it before the Department of the Treasury and get an answer.
