Senator CHRIS EVANS (Western AustraliaMinister for Tertiary Education, Skills, Jobs and Workplace Relations and Leader of the Government in the Senate) (17:31): by leave—I will make a short statement correcting something I said at question time. In answer to a question from Senator Sterle during question time I referred to Fortescue Metals Group as having a gross market capitalisation of around $50 billion. That was an error. I misspoke. I did not read my notes properly. I have been advised that their actual gross market capitalisation is around $20 billion. I just wanted to correct the record.
