Senator SIEWERT—I suppose you will find it hard to guess what I want to ask about: Christmas Island. First, I want to go to the issue of mining. I know I have to go to the other part of the portfolio, but I thought I would try you first. Where are you up to with the mining application?
Mr Cochrane—You will have to ask AWD, because we only provide inputs into that process and are not the decision maker.
Senator SIEWERT—Should we do that now or later? If we can do it now, that would be good.
