Senator McMANUS (VICTORIA) - I address a question to the Minister representing the Prime Minister who is in charge of the Australian Council for the Arts. Has the Minister noted the statement attributed to Mr John Harper-Nelson, former Executive Officer of the West Australian Arts Advisory Board, that he has resigned and that in his view the Australian Council for the Arts is a strange and secretive organisation- a vast, didactic, dictatorial organisation with a huge staff and a huge budget whose money seems to be directed to certain arts channels while others are- Mr President, there appears to be a caucus meeting in progress. I find it hard to make myself heard.

The PRESIDENT - Order!

Senator McMANUS - I will repeat the question.

The PRESIDENT - Order!

Senator McMANUS - I will rise at a later stage when the caucus meeting is over, Mr President.
