Senator HILL (Leader of the Government in the Senate) (2:00 PM) —by leave—I inform the Senate that Senator Amanda Vanstone, the Minister for Family and Community Services, will be absent from question time today. She is representing Australia at the APEC Women's Ministerial meeting in Mexico—a very important meeting. During Senator Vanstone's absence, Senator Patterson will take questions relating to family and community services, the status of women, and children and youth affairs.
