Senator SIEWERT (Western AustraliaAustralian Greens Whip) (17:20): I have a specific reason for asking this, and that is why I was talking about baseline data. During the committee inquiry process there seemed to be some doubt as to whether there would be adequate baseline information collected. That is why I am asking specifically about the data sets—so that we have a baseline from which to evaluate.

One of the problems with evaluating the Northern Territory intervention has always been that there was not that key data set—a baseline data set—available. I am particularly pursuing this line of questioning to find out whether we will in fact have an adequate baseline data set from which to evaluate and whether it will be available before the start of the trial and whether it will be publicly available so that we all can see what that baseline data is.
