Senator SINODINOS (New South WalesCabinet Secretary) (15:02): I would like to add to an answer I gave yesterday. The office of the Minister for Trade and Investment has confirmed that Mr Alastair Furnival was a member of the delegation to China in August this year. Mr Furnival was a member of the delegation to China in his capacity as a director of the global economic group Castalia Advisors, with a particular interest in health care. All participating delegates were required to cover the costs of their own travel and accommodation expenses, and I refer Senator Wong to comments made by Mr Furnival in the media today that he is not a lobbyist. There were two women who were members of the delegation to China.
