In respect of his planned lunch with Dr Angela Lanfranchi, Louise Kirk and representatives of the Latin American Alliance for the Family, (a) where was it to be hosted, (b) what was the anticipated cost, and was the cost to be met by his department, (c) who was invited, and which organisations did they represent, (d) what was the order of arrangements, (e) what was the proposed menu, and (f) were any gifts to be provided to guests.

Mr Pyne: The Minister for Employment has provided the following answer to the honourable Member’s question:

This question does not fall within those definitions.
