Senator McLUCAS (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Health and Ageing) (9:30 PM) —Very briefly, I will not respond to Senator Milne’s crystal ball, with which she can emphatically tell us that something is or is not going to happen; I do not think any of us can do that when we are talking about CCS. The specific question that Senator Milne asked was what amount per year would be required for monitoring. The reality is that that will be site specific. We are talking about sites of such variable size that every site will need to be addressed specifically. It will depend on their geology, their size and the porous nature of the material we are talking about. So it is not possible to answer that question in terms of an amount per year. The quantum will be ascertained according to the needs of each site.

Question negatived.
