Regional Tourism

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Leader of the Opposition) (14:20): Just to be clear, because I had asked specifically about the regional tourism organisation funding program, can the minister confirm that both the regional tourism organisation funding program and the regional consumer collaborative marketing fund program will be funded across the forward estimates; that is, this year and the next three out years in the budget?

The Hon. D.W. RIDGWAY (Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment) (14:21): I said, we are dealing with this year's budget at present, and I am advised that it is the intention to continue that funding across the forward estimates.
