Mr CREAN (2:53 PM) —I ask the Minister for Small Business again: Minister, have you had any discussions with the Treasurer concerning the Groom FEC scam arrangement? When did that discussion or those discussions take place, and what was the outcome of those discussions?


Mr IAN MACFARLANE (Minister for Small Business) —It is not this side of the House whose honesty is being questioned.


Mr Crean —Yes, it is.


Mr IAN MACFARLANE —I have discussions with the Treasurer all the time about a whole range of issues. I do not have a day-to-day knowledge of the operation of my FEC's finances, but I understand that everything is done in accordance with their tax obligations.
