Senator BESSELL (TASMANIA) - I direct a question to the Postmaster-General as the Minister representing the Ministers in charge of the Regional Employment Development scheme. What is the total amount of grants under the RED scheme already approved for the following Tasmanian municipalities: Circular Head, Wynyard, Waratah, Burnie, Penguin, Ulverstone and Devonport? Can the Minister give details of the number of applications in each of these municipalities which are being processed but which have not yet been approved? Can the Minister give details of the number of unemployed in each of these areas and the percentage unemployment they represent?

Senator BISHOP -Although Senator Bessellbrought the question to my notice just before 10 a.m., because of the amount of information required, it was impossible for me to get what the honourable senator has sought. I will get it as soon as possible. The question calls for details not only about Regional Employment Development grants but also about unemployment percentages. I will see whether I can get it early next week.
