Senator DASTYARI (New South WalesDeputy Opposition Whip in the Senate) (11:49): I assume that with Senate estimates next week there will be a chance to go through this in a bit more detail. How does the coordination with the state government work on a matter like this? Was there coordination with the state government? Were there discussions with the state government? One of the reasons you gave for Orange being the location that was chosen was that the government felt that Orange was superior to the other locations. The key reason you gave was that the state department of agriculture is already based there. How did the coordination work? Were they contacted and was there discussion with them before the announcement was made?
