Senator GIBSON (Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer)(12.05 p.m.) —The allocations are made back to the departments. The departments make the decisions about the actual programs. I stress again that the total amounts we have here are simply to continue the funding at the same rate arising from decisions made by the previous government. I cannot help you. The implications of any decisions taken by the coalition government will not become apparent until the 20 August budget. If you care to put your detailed questions on notice I can give you an assurance that we will endeavour to give you detailed responses over the next two weeks before we resume the next session here. That is the best I can do for you.
