Are the minimum hours in the right hand seat dropping?

There are claims around that because of the decline in general aviation, Australian airlines of say, 29 pax and more are putting pilots in the right hand seat with lower and lower total time.

Does anyone have any evidence of this?

Are there any minimums set and are there any examples (either in Australia or overseas) where low total time pilots are in the right hand seat of quite a large aircraft?

Any discussion would be really helpful.
