Senator FIFIELD (VictoriaManager of Government Business in the Senate and Minister for Communications and the Arts) (12:41): I will make a couple of points. Obviously I do know who Mr Anthony is, but I have no knowledge of his professional engagements. What I can state very clearly is that the organisational National Party, along with the organisational Liberal Party, have responsibility for choosing parliamentary candidates. They do not determine the policy of the coalition government. It is the joint party room of the coalition government and the various other internal processes of the government that determine government policy.
