[4381/96]

Minister for Agriculture, Food and Forestry (Mr. Yates): Information on Ivan Yates Zoom on Ivan Yates Since my appointment on 15 December 1994, one major study has been undertaken by my Department and four major studies have been undertaken by expert groups involving departmental staff and one or more persons from outside the Department. These studies do not include the many assessments, reviews and analyses of issues which are an intrinsic part of the day to day work of the Department or the ongoing work of representative expert groups such as the dairy, beef and sheepmeat quota review groups. The undertaking of studies by the State agencies under the aegis of my Department is a matter for the board and management of each such agency.
