Senator FIERRAVANTI-WELLS (New South WalesAssistant Minister for Multicultural Affairs) (10:10): Thank you for the Senate's indulgence. I am advised that Treasury advice was sought in relation to the work that was done by the Parliamentary Budget Office. I am advised that it was dismissed because the measure is not quantifiable and that the work that was done failed to look at the behavioural implications that are necessary to make an appropriate assessment. The necessity for this bill is to ensure that we will be able to access data which goes to those activities. Senator Ketter, that is what I have just been advised.
