Senator FAULKNER (Special Minister of State and Cabinet Secretary) (3:03 PM) —by leave—I am going to table a letter, dated 16 June 2008, from the Minister for Defence, the Hon. Joel Fitzgibbon MP. Mr President, it is a letter addressed to you, as President of the Senate. It is in relation to a motion that was moved on behalf of Senator Minchin on 15 May this year, requesting that I, as Special Minister of State, table ‘the red folder brandished by the minister’—I interpolate that that is Mr Fitzgibbon—‘which he claims contains details of “problematic” defence procurement projects’. In relation to that particular matter, I table the letter.
