Senator HEFFERNAN (New South Wales) (15:38): Pursuant to standing order 74(5), I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Senator Carr—who usually sits over there—for an explanation as to why answers have not been provided to questions on notice Nos 1 to 87, none of which have been answered, asked during the additional estimates hearings in the Senate Rural Affairs and Transport Legislation Committee on 22 February. Also, despite the fact that my learned friend over there, Senator Sterle, has also written to the minister asking for the answers to those questions, we have not received them.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Senator Heffernan, as the minister is not here, unless there is somebody on the government benches who chooses to respond, I can take this no further.
