Senator STEPHENS (Parliamentary Secretary for Social Inclusion and the Voluntary Sector and Parliamentary Secretary Assisting the Prime Minister for Social Inclusion) (12:25 PM) —Thank you, Senator Ludlam, for your patience; you do understand that this is not my portfolio area so I am seeking some advice.
