Senator BOB COLLINS(5.26 p.m.) —There is simply a need for one clarification in respect of that helpful statement. You appeared to make an absolute qualification at the beginning of that explanation that this related to essential services. It is a fact that many communities use CDEP moneys for these essential services. The question that is still outstanding, if I heard you correctly, is: what happens to CDEPs that are not involved in the provision of essential services?

Senator Herron —The transitional arrangements apply to all organisations and not just to essential services.

Senator BOB COLLINS —So that qualification is not there?

Senator Herron —No.
