Senator JESSOP (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Minister for Minerals and Energy. I refer to a question asked earlier this week by Senator Young relating to questions on notice concerning the proposed petrochemical plant at Redcliffs, in South Australia. I remind the Minister that there are 5 questions on notice in the name of Senator Young and one in my name. Before the Minister for Minerals and Energy goes overseas, does he intend to respond to the request to provide answers, or does he intend to evade this issue which is of urgent and immediate interest to South Australia?

Senator WRIEDT - I imagine that the Minister for Minerals and Energy would be about the last Minister to evade anything; I would have thought that would be well known publicly. I am not in a position to say whether the answers to these questions will be available before he leaves for overseas tonight. As soon as question time is over I shall contact him with a view to ensuring that, if at all possible, those answers be provided before he leaves.
