Senator CROSSIN (12:17 PM) —I want to say a couple of things. Firstly, Senator Murphy, would you be prepared to table the letter you received from Mr Abbott?

Senator Murphy —I am quite happy to table it.

Senator CROSSIN —Thank you. Minister, as I understand it you are suggesting that Darwin and Palmerston are currently classified as RRMA 1. Is that correct?

Senator Ian Campbell —Yes.

Senator Murphy —And Humpty Doo.

Senator CROSSIN —And Katherine, I understand. It is my understanding that there will be a review of the RRMA areas. Is that correct?

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator Watson)—Senator Crossin, finish your speech first.

Senator CROSSIN —I am asking a question. Will the RRMA areas be reviewed or revised?

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN —Sit down if you have finished.

Senator CROSSIN —I am just getting a nod of the head and I don't think Hansard can record that.

Senator Ian Campbell —I will stand up and then I can say something.

Senator CROSSIN —Thank you.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN —Order! Senators have to talk in proper sequence. We cannot have questions flowing to and fro. Senator Crossin, when you have finished your speech, sit down and the minister will have an opportunity to respond. But while you are still on your feet I cannot call him.
