Senator BROWN (1:57 AM) —There we have it. What the minister meant by `sustainably produced' was that it sustainably produces dollars. It had nothing to do with the environment at all. Because we are talking about native forests—and, as Senator O'Brien has said, that means the native forests in Tasmania—I would like to ask the minister why he has failed to abide by a Senate request for him to lay on the table by noon today the documents relating to the answers to question on notice No. 404? That was my question about breaches of the forest practices code at Interlaken in Tasmania. Can the minister say why he has failed to meet that request from the Senate?
