Senator CARR —by leave—I would like to say something on this matter. A press conference was held to consider the report on the Telstra bill. I was at that press conference with Senator O'Chee; I had no trouble making the division. I heard the bells. The press conference ended and Senator O'Chee and I walked down. There were only a few minutes between the ringing of the bells and the ending of that press conference. I find it odd that we have a difference in explanations. I was in the same room at the conclusion of that press conference, the bells rang a few minutes after the conclusion of that press conference, and I had no difficulty making it to the chamber.
