Leave granted.

Senator CHRIS EVANS —I advise that Senator Arbib will be absent from the Senate on Wednesday, 29 September and Thursday, 30 September.

I wish to indicate that Mr Arbib’s ministerial and representational responsibilities will be undertaken in the following manner, and I advised party leaders of this yesterday. Senator Sherry will have responsibility for sport, Senator Ludwig will have responsibility for human services, and Senator Carr will have responsibility for arts and social inclusion. I will have responsibility for families, housing, community services and Indigenous affairs; Indigenous employment and economic development; and social housing and homelessness.
