Senator CALVERT (12.01 p.m.) —I put in a reservation on the questions I asked the Attorney-General's Department about the Law Enforcement Access Network, commonly known as LEAN. Because of the time of the evening the Minister was rather anxious to get the matter settled. I am not saying he was trying to rush matters through, but on looking at some of the answers I received I noted that the answers on that particular night were almost identical with the answers I received on 10 September last year. If the officers had been here, I was going to ask them how much progress had been made on the letting of tenders for this computer program. In the Estimates previous to last September's Estimates I asked questions about LEAN and about whether the privacy guidelines that were a matter of concern to the Privacy Commissioner were any further advanced.
