Mr BRENDAN O'CONNOR (GortonMinister for Housing, Minister for Homelessness and Minister for Small Business) (18:10): I say to the honourable member that he is correct in assuming that I am not in a position to fully answer what are very specific, significant and important questions. Of course he does have the facility, as members do, to ask for questions on notice. He is using this opportunity to require the minister—and I guess I am acting on his behalf—to respond to those specific questions in writing. I am happy to give that undertaking. They are important questions, and the responses should be provided to the honourable member. But, given the nature of the questions and the specific requests for certain information that I am not privy to at this point, we will indeed do that in writing and not attempt to do it by way of response now.
