Senator WRIEDT (Tasmania) (Leader of the Opposition) - by leave- I wish to clarify a matter. Senator Carrick, in answer to a question from Senator Bishop, referred to contact over the weekend between the Government, specifically the Minister for Foreign Affairs (Mr Peacock), and me. I acknowledge that it was not Senator Carrick 's intention to misrepresent the position in any way, but as I heard the answer it at least gave the impression to me that contact was made by the Government to offer briefing information on the current problems in Iran. I wish just for the record to make it clear that contact with the Minister for Foreign Affairs was made by me. I add that he indicated his readiness to make available to the Opposition whatever information he could.
