Senator BUTTON (Leader of the Government in the Senate) —by leave—I inform the Senate that the Minister for Defence, Senator Robert Ray, will be absent from the chamber up to and including Wednesday. Senator Ray is overseas on Government business. Any questions which would normally be directed to Senator Ray in relation to his portfolio should be directed to Senator Richardson.

  I also inform the Senate that the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Senator Gareth Evans, will be absent from the chamber this week. Senator Evans is overseas on Government business. Any questions which would normally be directed to Senator Evans in relation to his portfolio should be directed to me until Wednesday and to Senator Ray on Thursday.
