Senator McLAREN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Is the Minister representing the Minister for Labor and Immigration able to say whether the Minister responsible for the Regional Employment Development Scheme has this week considered new areas in South Australia as being eligible to participate in the Scheme?

Senator BISHOP (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Postmaster-General) - Mr Crean,who stood in for Mr Clyde Cameron at yesterday's meeting of the RED Ministers, has given the information that for South Australia the Ministers declared the outer metropolitan area, coming within the administrative responsibility of the Elizabeth City Council, as being eligible for assistance under the scheme. The Elizabeth City Council is within the boundaries of the area served by the office of the Commonwealth Employment Service at Elizabeth. The same applies to the Redcliffe City Council in Queensland. The Elizabeth City Council, the Redcliffe City Council and local bodies in those areas may now put forward projects for consideration under the RED Scheme.
