Mr President, I ask a supplementary question. Minister, item 50 of the Institute of Public Affairs's policy hit list states that the government should break up the ABC and put out to tender each individual function, and item 51 of the same hit list says privatise SBS. Can the minister inform the Senate as to whether these unforgivable cuts announced today are simply phase 1 of a broader attack on Australia's treasured national broadcasters?
