Senator RUSTON (South AustraliaAssistant Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources) (11:43): At the risk of repeating myself, I've given you a series of criteria, and the attributes of the city of Orange as to which it was considered to be the most suitable. Those criteria obviously have been considered by government as meeting the objectives and the requirements of the location of this organisation better than a number of other locations that were considered, as I've pointed out, not exclusively but including the locations that I read out in response to the question that I received from Senator Bernardi. I can go through all of the reasons why Orange was considered to be the preferred location and why it was chosen as the location for the Regional Investment Corporation. However, as I say, in the interests of time, I won't waste the chamber's time.
