Senator CAVANAGH (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I ask a question of the Minister representing the Minister for Labour and National Service. Is the Government financing the challenge in the Commonwealth Industrial Court by 2 individuals to the amalgamation of 3 metal trade unions? If so, what is the estimated cost to the Government of such assistance?

The PRESIDENT - Order! I thought that that question was asked and answered yesterday.

Senator WRIGHT - I have no recollection of that, Mr President. The Government has made provision for assistance, by way of legal costs, for those who object to the amalgamation. I am unable to state the amount of that assistance. I do not know whether the Attorney-General can give the information now, but I will undertake to obtain it for the honourable senator if it is available.
