Senator WONG (South AustraliaMinister for Finance and Deregulation) (15:50): I was just going to, perhaps, assist. I wonder if this would be possible, given that I think Senator Ludwig is on his way and we are still waiting for the departmental advisers. If the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry would like to make sure their advisers are here fairly shortly, the Minister for Finance and Deregulation would really appreciate that.

Senator Chris Evans: It would help in the next budget round too, for them!

Senator WONG: I thought I should get that on the Hansard. But I might—through you, Mr Chairman—suggest that, if we could put a number of questions on notice, I am sure the minister, who is arriving now, will be able to respond.

The CHAIRMAN: I will call Senator Nash while Senator Ludwig is moving to his seat.
