Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Media) - by leave- I inform the Senate that the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Senator Willesee, is attending the Colombo Plan consultative meeting in Singapore and will return to Australia on 5 December. In his absence, the

Prime Minister, Mr Whitlam, is acting as Minister for Foreign affairs and the Leader of the Government in the Senate, Senator Murphy, will represent those Ministers usually represented by Senator Willesee in the Senate. However, the Leader of the Government in the Senate, Senator Murphy, today is attending a memorial service for the late Honourable Sir Douglas Menzies, a justice of the High Court of Australia. Senator Murphy will be absent from the sitting for most of the day. In the absence of Senator Murphy and Senator Willesee during question time today, unless questions are of a particularly urgent nature, I would request honourable senators to place on notice any questions they would normally direct to those Ministers.
