Senator HILL (Leader of the Government in the Senate) (2:00 PM) —by leave—I inform the Senate that Senator Kay Patterson, the Minister for Health and Ageing and the Minister representing the Minister for Ageing, will be absent from question time today. Senator Patterson is representing the Prime Minister at the cleansing ceremony at the site of the bombing in Kuta in Bali. During Senator Patterson's absence, Senator Vanstone will take questions relating to health and ageing. I also wish to inform the Senate that earlier today Senator the Hon. Ian Macdonald was sworn in as the Minister for Fisheries, Forestry and Conservation.



Senator HILL —No, it is an expanding empire, I would say, in recognition of exceptional capabilities. The new ministerial title better reflects Senator Macdonald's responsibilities for the Australian fishing industry and aquaculture matters. For the information of honourable senators, I table a revised ministry list and seek leave to have it incorporated in Hansard.

Leave granted.
