Questions in Writing

Mr BOWEN (McMahon) (15:11): Madam Speaker, my question to you is under standing order 105, which stipulates that if a reply has not been received within 60 days to a question appearing on the Notice Paper the member may ask you to write to the relevant minister asking for an explanation. In accordance with this standing order, I ask you to write to the Treasurer seeking an explanation as to why he has not answered the following questions: 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37 and 38.

The SPEAKER (15:10): I thank the member for his advice and I will so write.

Mr KELVIN THOMSON (Wills) (15:12): Madam Speaker, I also have a question to you pursuant to standing order 105(b) in relation to replies not being received within 60 days after the question appearing on the Notice Paper. I ask you to write to the Treasurer seeking reasons for the delay in answering question No. 6 concerning foreign investors in property, question No. 7 concerning non-Australian students being permitted to buy Australian properties, and question No. 9 concerning action the government might take to combat multinational tax avoidance.

The SPEAKER (15:13): I take note of the member's question and will deal with it in accordance with standing order 105.
