Senator McMANUS (VICTORIA) - I ask a question of the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs. We had a statement that Senator Georges was no longer the head of the turtle farming company, Applied Ecology Pty Ltd; we have now had a statement from him that he is head of the company. Can the Minister inform the Senate whether Senator Georges is in, whether he is out, or whether he is suspended like Mohammed's coffin between heaven and earth?

Senator CAVANAGH -I do not know from what source Senator McManus got the information that there had been a statement that Senator Georges was no longer a director of Applied Ecology Pty Ltd. There has been no statement to that effect. There was a statement that in the reorganisation of Applied Ecology he and other directors will be replaced with directors whose qualifications are suitable for the new organisation. I am not retracting my first statement that at some time there will be a replacement.
