the first report due?
(5) Will the

Hon ALANNAH MacTIERNAN
I need to advise the member that I have not seen that
question. There is not a copy of that question or answer in my file, and indeed
I have not seen it. It has not been presented to me today. I will be more than
happy for the member to ask it again tomorrow.
Hon Robin Chapple: It is question C263.
Hon ALANNAH MacTIERNAN: I apologise; I have not seen
it, and it is not here.
