Senator MINCHIN (Leader of the Opposition in the Senate) (2:01 PM) —by leave—There have been a number of changes to the shadow ministry, announced at midday by the Leader of the Opposition, which of course affect the Senate. I draw the Senate’s attention to the fact that Senator Helen Coonan has been appointed the Manager of Opposition Business in the Senate, replacing the redoubtable Senator Ellison, who will be sadly missed from that position. I also congratulate all those senators who have been reappointed and who join our front bench. I note with great pleasure there is a very high level of representation of coalition senators on the shadow front bench—a record, I think—reflecting the talent that we have in the opposition in this place. I seek leave to have a list of the shadow ministry and parliamentary secretaries including Senate representational arrangements incorporated in Hansard.

Leave granted.
