The Government has been returned as a minority Government with the support of the Greens'
Mr Adam Bandt and the three Independents, Mr Tony Windsor MP, Mr Rob Oakeshott MP and Mr Andrew
Caretaker Conventions outline that the Caretaker period continued until the election result
is clear. The decision of the independents on 7 September 2010 means that the Government has been returned.
Consequently the Department's operations and services will return to business as usual.
