Senator FIERRAVANTI-WELLS (New South WalesAssistant Minister for Multicultural Affairs) (10:11): Perhaps I can put it in this way: Treasury provided advice in relation to what the Labor Party put out there.

My understanding is that work was dismissed because of its failure to take into account and look at behavioural implications necessary for an appropriate quantifiable estimation.
