That the Senate notes:

(a) the continued failure of the Chair of the Economics Legislation Committee (Senator Gibson) to ensure that questions taken on notice by the Department of the Treasury during estimates hearings were responded to within 30 days as promised by Senator Gibson; and

(b) despite repeated calls by Senator Gibson for cooperation and goodwill to exist amongst committee members, his failure to ensure a reciprocation of such goodwill and cooperation as evidenced by the fact that answers to questions taken on notice are now some 60 days overdue, despite Senator Gibson's commitment.
