Social Services Legislation Amendment (Cashless Debit Card) Bill 2017; In Committee
You asked me a question about costs. I'm telling you that costs for operating additional sites are not for publication due to potential commercial sensitivities, because there are contracts and contractual obligations involved. I've explained to you that the cost of the four sites to 2020 is $1,000 per person. Those are my instructions. I can seek further instructions, but that's what I am instructed to put to the Senate.
