Senator MARGETTS(10.52 a.m.) —Could the minister give us some details of the ATSIC question and answer document prior to the nominations opening?

Senator Herron —What would you like, Senator Margetts?

Senator MARGETTS —We have been absolutely assured that the only information people did get about the election was in relation to the time and date of the election. We were not given any information about the number of councillors. I just wonder if the minister knew about an ATSIC question and answer document in relation to the election?

Senator Herron —If it exists we will get it for you, Senator Margetts.

Senator MARGETTS —With all due respect, if it exists it seems to counteract the previous response saying there was no other information given about the election.

Senator Herron —Senator Margetts is implying that she has information that I do not have and that I am not aware of. I respect the veracity of what she is saying and that she is not filibustering so, if that information exists, I will get it.
