Senator DONALD CAMERON (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Labour and Immigration) - I direct my question to the Minister representing the Minister for Labor and Immigration. The Minister is no doubt aware of a meeting in Canberra to consider aid to municipal areas under the Regional Employment Development scheme- commonly called the RED scheme. Are there any new areas in South Australia that will be granted further benefit under the scheme?

Senator BISHOP - In making his report about yesterday's meeting on the Regional Employment Development scheme, Mr Clyde Cameron pointed out that previously when areas had been declared eligible for participation in the scheme they have encompassed the entire employment office areas administered by the Department of Labor and Immigration. Today the new pockets added to the list of areas eligible for the scheme are individual local government areas. I am told that the new areas in South Australia now eligible are those of the Gawler Municipal Council, the Whyalla City Council and the Murray Bridge District Council.
