Senator FAULKNER (Minister for Defence) (3:31 PM) —by leave—I have just come in to serve as the duty minister, and I am advised that apparently the manager of government business has not seen this; my colleague Senator Stephens has advised me. My suggestion is that Senator Fierravanti-Wells come back to this at a later stage in the Senate’s proceedings. If we deal with it now it would mean that, in the circumstances I am faced with—this being communicated to me—I would not grant leave. My suggestion is to come back to it at a later stage in the proceedings, if that helps.
