Senator COOK (Minister for Industry, Science and Technology) —Yesterday the Senate carried a motion moved by Senator Kernot asking me, in my capacity as Minister representing the Treasurer, to place on the table documents which the Treasurer (Mr Willis) or his officials provided to Mr Justice Sheppard in the Federal Court of Australia on 18 July 1994 in relation to `the Independent Newspaper plc and the Australian Independent Newspaper consortium claim against the Fairfax group, its former receivers and their advisers'. The motion then listed the information sought. I have a letter from the Treasurer to Senator Kernot, which I now table.
