Senator PRIMMER - Mr President, I seek your guidance as to the Minister to which I should direct the following question: Has the Minister seen the photograph on page 18 of today's 'Canberra Times' depicting fashion models? If so, has he noticed that one model is carrying what appears to be a revolver? Will the Minister draw to the attention of those responsible for this photograph that clothes and not guns maketh the man?

The PRESIDENT - We do not have a Minister for sundry matters.

Senator COTTON - I will quite happily take responsibility for answering any question relating to modelling, Mr President. No doubt you have noticed the great number of volunteers to answer this question. It seems to me that it could relate to the portfolio of Customs and Excise. Most questions relating to guns fall into that category. A question about modelling also could be directed at the Minister in Charge of Tourist Activities, whom I also represent in this chamber. The honourable senator did not say whether the photograph depicted a female gun carrying model or a male gun carrying model. In the circumstances, I shall look at the picture with great interest and talk to the responsible Minister about it.
