Senator CHAMARETTE (3.16 p.m.) —I want to make a very brief comment. Senator Campbell correctly noted my interest in the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Native Title and implied that some consultation and negotiation had occurred between Senator Kernot and me prior to the government announcing the Senate membership. I want to correct the impression that I was given that opportunity to nominate for membership of the committee, because I did put a request in but did not receive any acknowledgment in reply. I was not in the chamber at the time that the nominations were placed. I simply want to correct that impression. I have no problem with it, and I am prepared to discuss with Senator Kernot whether there is any way in which I can participate on that committee. I just wanted to correct the impression.

  Question resolved in the affirmative.
