Senator McGRATH (QueenslandAssistant Minister to the Prime Minister) (15:47): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute, Senator McGrath.

Senator McGRATH: The government understands that the Tasmanian Environment Protection Authority will be monitoring air quality across this cruise ship season. The government is willing to consider a request from the Tasmanian government to implement a lower fuel-sulphur-content level for cruise ships at berth in the port of Hobart, if it is submitted with supporting evidence.

Question agreed to.
