Senator JOHNSTON (Western Australia) (16:52): by leave—in contrast to many of his colleagues in the Gillard government, Senator Carr has the respect and reverence for this chamber to come in and to correct the record. I think it is important he did that. I want to compliment him for doing that and I thank him for that. This is a very sorry set of circumstances where a good man has been stood aside for some 12 months now with this report languishing not on his desk but on the Minister for Defence's desk. I thank him for coming into the chamber and correcting the record.
