Senator SHERRY (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Primary Industries and Energy) (11.50 a.m.) —I am not sure whether I have been shown what Senator Ferguson has been provided with. Is that not in sufficient detail for his purposes? If he could perhaps indicate where it is insufficient, we can try to sort out with the department what additional information can be provided.


Senator Ferguson —I do not have it with me, unfortunately. I asked to be provided with a table which lists full-time positions and corresponding levels of salary in the department and the non-APS agencies. You are saying that that has been answered?


Senator SHERRY —I am informed that what you have requested over and above what has already been provided—just looking through, it is considerable data—is quite a massive task. The department will endeavour, within a reasonable time frame, to obtain the type of information that you are seeking. I understand that Senator Collins is on his way to the chamber. When he gets here, perhaps we can look in some detail at the salary levels.
