Mr HOWARD (Prime Minister) (2:01 PM) —I inform the House that the Minister for Trade will be absent from question time today and for the remainder of the week. The minister is visiting Mexico to attend meetings of the APEC trade ministers. The Minister for Foreign Affairs will answer questions on his behalf. I also inform the House that the Minister for Veterans' Affairs has been unavoidably detained whilst attending the New South Wales RSL congress in Sydney and will be absent from question time today. During her absence any questions in that portfolio area will be answered by the Minister for Foreign Affairs.
