Senator BOB BROWN (Leader of the Australian Greens) (3:06 PM) —by leave—Mr Deputy President, I would like to seek an explanation for the absence of an answer from a minister to a question verbally given on notice. On Monday I asked Senator Carr, the Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, about government assistance given to the promotion of Gunns pulp mill and the foreign investment involved in that through embassies and international outreach. He told the Senate that he would ask the Minister for Trade and come back to the Senate. He has not done that. It may be that he has not yet had time to do it. I just want the Senate to note that I will be pursuing the matter of the minister not responding to that question.
