Senator Dame MARGARET GUILFOYLE — I direct my question to the Minister representing the Minister for Defence Support. I understand that the Department of Defence Support has called tenders for the rework of the air traffic control towers at Richmond in New South Wales and East Sale in Victoria. I further understand that the tenders for these projects close on 20 January. A number of would-be tenderers are concerned at the closing date in view of the holiday shutdown. Will the Attorney refer this matter to the Minister for Defence Support to see whether there is any possibility of an extension of time for the acceptance of tenders for these projects?


Senator GARETH EVANS —I will follow innumerable precedents set by the honourable questioner and do exactly what she requests.
