Senator COONAN (Minister for Revenue and Assistant Treasurer) (3:05 PM) —I thank Senator Sherry for mentioning this matter to my office so that I could get an appropriate update. I will take the questions seriatim. The answer to question No. 304, on superannuation benefits, is very close to being finalised and will be tabled shortly. My best information is that this will be by the end of the week. Answers to question No. 405, which contains within it 26 questions, and to question No. 561, which also contains another 10 questions on Commercial Nominees, should be available within the next day or two.

The answer to question No. 560, which contains 12 questions on the Australian Independent Superannuation Fund should also be available in the next day or two. The answer to question No. 562, on Freedom of Choice Monthly Income Pool and APRA, is very close to being finalised. My best estimate is the next day or two. The answer to question No. 704, relating to the very fine former Senator Michael Baume, will be tabled by the end of this week. The answer to question No. 705, on government responses to the Senate Select Committee on Superannuation, will be available by the end of the week. Question Nos. 829 and 879, which relate to GST, electricity and APRA's annual report, are still under consideration, and I should be in a position to provide Senator Sherry with a better estimate shortly; I just cannot do that today.
