Senator DURACK (Western AustraliaActing Leader of the Government in the Senate) - I think that Senator Walsh's motion needs to be dealt with immediately. Senator Walsh alleged that Senator Carrick has run away- I think that was the phrase he used- from a censure motion. No notice of such a motion has been given. Whatever Senator Walsh or his colleagues may imagine is not something of which we should be expected to take notice. Senator Carrick 's visit to the United States of America to have discussions on energy matters has been arranged for some little time. I do not have the exact details of when it was arranged. It was certainly arranged before we were last here. I have known for some time that he would be away. There cannot be any suggestion that he suddenly decided to go away. That is the answer to the matters raised by Senator Walsh.
