Senator FIFIELD (VictoriaManager of Government Business in the Senate, Minister for Communications and Minister for the Arts) (15:04): Thank you, Senator Brown, for the opportunity to advise the Senate that this is the only outstanding question on notice in the Social Services portfolio. I should note that this particular question was asked on 13 January this year. I also advise colleagues that all answers to in excess of 1,000 questions on notice received by Social Services at additional estimates, budget estimates and supplementary budget estimates 2015 were submitted to the committee secretariat by the due date, with the exception of 13 that were submitted within one month of the due date. I am assured by the minister that the response to this single question, which is outstanding, will be tabled before the end of the week.
