Senator BUTTON (Leader of the Government in the Senate) —by leave-I inform the Senate that the Minister for Community Services, Senator Grimes, left for Paris on 7 December to represent the Government at an Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development conference on youth and disability. He will return to Australia on 21 December. In his absence the Minister for Social Security, Mr Howe, is Acting Minister for Community Services. Any questions which would normally be directed to Senator Grimes in relation to his portfolio or those he represents in the chamber should be directed to Senator Ryan. Queries on the management of Government Business should be addressed to me.
