Senator McGRATH (QueenslandAssistant Minister to the Prime Minister) (12:20): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator McGRATH: While established by the government, the royal commission is independent of government, and the specific matters that the commission may decide to examine will be the commission's alone. The commissioner may, under provision (a) of the letters patent, consider the actions of anyone acting on behalf of financial services entities. The government would consider any request by the independent royal commission.
