Senator HILL (Minister for Defence) (3:01 PM) —I have some further information in response to a question asked by Senator Nettle on 18 November 2004 in relation to Fallujah. I seek leave to have the answer incorporated in Hansard.

Leave granted.

The answer read as follows—

Senator Nettle asked the Minister for Defence upon notice on 18 November 2004:

Can the Minister confirm the number of ADF personnel operating under the control of the US military who were engaged in the military assault in Fallujah?

Senator Hill—The answer to the Honourable Senator's question is as follows:

Defence does not believe that any Australians serving with US forces on third country deployments were involved in combat operations in Fallujah.
