Senator KEEFFE (QUEENSLAND) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Treasurer or the Minister representing the Minister for Foreign Affairs, if that is more appropriate. The Minister will recall that I have questions on notice - question No. 2095 is one of them - concerning aid to Bangladesh, I understand that replies have been given in another place to similar questions. I ask: What is the reason for the delay in answering the questions of this nature that are on the notice paper of the Senate?


The PRESIDENT - Senator Wright,the honourable senator has given you the option of answering his question or of allowing the Leader of the Government in the Senate to answer it. Do you wish to answer the question?


Senator Wright - I think the Leader of the Government should answer it.

Senator Sir KENNETHANDERSONI suggest that the question be put on notice. I understood that it was being asked of the Minister representing the Minister for Foreign Affairs. If the honourable senator puts his question on notice I will get an answer for him.


Senator Keeffe - Questions on this subject are already on the notice paper. I am asking what is the reason for the delay in answering them.

Senator Sir KENNETHANDERSONI will find out what is the reason for the delay.
