Senator MINCHIN (Minister for Finance and Administration) (2:00 PM) —by leave—I inform the Senate that Senator Hill, Minister for Defence, Leader of the Government in the Senate, Minister representing the Prime Minister, Minister representing the Minister for Trade, Minister representing the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister representing the Minister for Veterans' Affairs, will be absent from question time today. Senator Hill is currently returning from official business overseas, and I am sure he will be back tonight. During Senator Hill's absence, I will take questions on behalf of the Prime Minister's portfolio, Senator the Hon. Ian Campbell will take questions on behalf of the portfolios of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Senator the Hon. Chris Ellison will take questions on behalf of the portfolios of Defence and Veterans' Affairs.
