Senator IAN CAMPBELL (Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer) (3:40 PM) —by leave—The Senate agreed to a motion moved by Senator O'Brien on 16 October seeking documents relating to the government's consideration of an ethanol excise and production subsidy and some related matters. Due to the number of agencies involved in the coordination of the response it has not been possible in such a short period of time to comply with this order. I can indicate that the government intends to comply with the order as soon as possible and fully expects to be in a position to do so shortly.
