My question is to the Minister representing the Prime Minister, Senator Eric Abetz. Can the minister confirm that the Department of Human Services told ICT staff in Hobart on 5 December that it intends to transfer 56 ICT positions from Hobart to Adelaide, Brisbane and Canberra? How is this loss of jobs consistent with assurances the department gave staff in April 2013 that there were no plans to 'move existing staff from, or close the ICT functions in Hobart'?
