Mr Wood: Mr Speaker - - -
MR SPEAKER: Do you have a point of order too?
Mr Wood: No, I have a question, and we seem to have more questions still coming.
MR SPEAKER: Not everybody has yet asked a question.
Employment and Training Grants
MS TUCKER: My question is for Mr De Domenico in his capacity as Minister for Employment. Could the Minister confirm that the Government is considering cutting the employment and training grants from $4m to $1.6m? If this is the case, can the Minister please outline the Government's rationale behind these proposed cuts and indicate which programs are likely to face the greatest cuts and what the processes are for any decisions regarding funding cuts to non-government agencies?
MR DE DOMENICO: I thank the member for her question. As the member would be aware, any expenditure of that sort is part of budget discussions in budget Cabinet. I would prefer to give the views to my colleagues first in Cabinet. Once the Government does make a decision, Ms Tucker, we will let you know.
Mrs Carnell: I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.
Twinning Arrangement with Versailles
MRS CARNELL: Mr Speaker, I would like to inform the Assembly that the extremely efficient people in the Chief Minister's Department have managed to stop the French letters from going to Versailles and Les Yvelines.
