Senator IAN MACDONALD (Queensland) (15:37): Mr Deputy President, very briefly, can I just ask the minister what Mr Mike Kaiser, the very highly paid government relations officer for NBN, a former Labor Party apparatchik in both Queensland and New South Wales, is doing to earn the huge salary he is receiving from his appointment—without any competition, I might add. This would seem to be something that Mr Kaiser should be looking at as the government relations man, and I just wonder if the minister could indicate what Mr Kaiser is possibly doing to justify his huge salary.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: The question is that the motion moved by Senator Fisher be agreed to.

Question agreed to.
