Senator KEEFFE - I draw the attention of the Leader of the Government in the Senate to question No. 2103, which I placed on the notice paper on 13th April, and question No. 2132, which was placed on the notice paper on 20th April. Each question seeks information concerning Commonwealth grants allocated for the relief of cyclone damage at Townsville. I now ask the Minister: Is he aware that insurance companies have now made an unofficial statement admitting that the payout is likely to be in excess of $50m? Why is this information completely unavailable from the Prime Minister's Department?


I am relying on my memory, but I recall that Senator Keeffe has already asked me a follow-up question in relation to question No. 2103 on the notice paper. I do not remember question No. 2132 on the notice paper. But at a later hour today I will be in direct contact with officers of the Prime Minister's Department to see what is delaying this information being made to the honourable senator.
