Senator WILLESEE - I direct my question to the Minister for Air. Yesterday I asked him a question about the number of journalists accompanying the Minister for External Territories to the CocosIslands, and how many of the 26 seats would be vacant. In his answer the Minister for Air did not provide this information.I now ask how many of the seats will be vacant on this trip?

Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN - The particular aircraft to which the honourable senator referred takes 26 passengers. There will be 7 passengers plus 4 other people from the media, a total of 11, so the result of subtracting 11 from 26 will provide the number of vacant seats.
