Senator WRIGHT - The position is that jobs for which tenders had already been called have been proceeding. The curtailment operated only in respect of jobs for which tenders had not been called. My recollection is that in the case of the

Department of Works such jobs represented something like $2m in expenditure to June. I was looking at the matter only yesterday. The fact is that, in respect of jobs costing $400,000 or more in each instance, since 1st February I have announced jobs representing almost Si Om worth of work in Darwin, Port Moresby, Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and elsewhere. In addition the usual run of jobs which cost less than $400,000 have been proceeding if the tenders were invited before the curtailment.
