Senator REID —My question is addressed to the Leader of the Government in the Senate, Senator Button. I refer to the Prime Minister's reported statement that he will be making an announcement on taxation later this week. Will the statement be made before the Senate rises so as to enable debate and questioning on what the Prime Minister says, and will the Prime Minister announce the timetable and the agenda for the review?


Senator BUTTON —The specific matters directed to me in that question will be announced by the Prime Minister at the appropriate time, which will be later this week. The Senate will not be sitting then, if I have anything to do with the matter.
