Any report about a point in time that tries to suddenly say it is going to have an impact on the process or the proceedings when none of them had started at the time, how can you possibly say this is somehow an evaluation? It does not pretend to be and it is not. If you are going to start looking at those programs, perhaps you should also speak about some of the other matters with the ANAO. It congratulates the government. It talks about the benefit of a more consolidated program. It talks about greater flexibility by which organisations can receive the funding. It talks about the greater reduction in red tape for the service providers and the ability, most importantly, for the first time, to develop local responses to local issues. (Time expired).
