I wonder who said this about automotive policy: that it left international company executives wondering just what they had to do to get a consistent government policy commitment in Australia. It was none other than Senator Kim Carr on his own government's policies in relation to the automotive sector.

Let us be very clear. I have said that I am not aware of any background briefing referred to by the Leader of the Opposition, but I am aware of on the record comments by the former undistinguished minister for industry and I am also aware of comments by the South Australian Premier in relation to Labor policies having a detrimental impact on the motor vehicle industry. I am more than happy to go through those for the benefit of those opposite. (Time expired)
