Senator COLLARD —My question is also addressed to the Minister representing the Attorney-General. I refer to the legal advice given to the Government by a prominent Queen's Counsel and the Solicitor-General regarding the difficult situation or the debacle that the Government is in over the Australian War Memorial. What is the particular question of concern regarding the administration of the Australian War Memorial referred to by the Minister for Veterans' Affairs in his statement last night and a response to which will be sought from Air Vice-Marshal Flemming? How is any conflict between Air Vice-Marshal Flemming and the person or persons making the allegation to be resolved?

Senator GARETH EVANS —That is a matter on which I do not think it is appropriate to comment further at this stage.
