Senator WILLIAMS (New South WalesNationals Whip in the Senate) (15:08): Mr Deputy President, I seek leave to make a brief statement for one minute.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator WILLIAMS: I intend to copy this and circulate it around the chamber so everyone can see it. The government called for these very documents, these electricity invoices, during question time. The government called for them and we have them here. Let us see if this is the open and transparent government under Ms Gillard that we were told about on 21 August 2010. Mr Deputy President, I will have these copied. I will circulate them around the chamber and then between the hours of 4 and 5, when I am on whips duty, I will move to have them tabled, as requested by the government, who wanted to see these invoices and see that the question I put in question time is true, honest and factual.
