Senator Dame ANNABELLE RANKIN (Queensland) (Minister for Housing) (5.18) - My first reply to Senator Webster related to section 27d(1.). I omitted to mention sub-section (2.) of that section and for that I apologise. This new section concerns the auditing of the accounts of the

Australian Broadcasting Control Board. Yesterday the honourable senator asked me whether the intention set out in section 27d (2.) appeared in other Acts of Parliament. I can inform him that the provision was taken almost verbatim from section 45b of the Audit Act. The effect of the proposed section 27o (2.) is to give to the Auditor-General the same powers as he has in respect of any of his normal Public Service audits.
