Mr Speaker, I ask for your assistance, under standing order 105, concerning a long list, unfortunately, of questions that remain unanswered by every minister sitting opposite us today regarding the legal expenditure of the government. Mr Speaker, could you please write to those ministers—most of them are here—and remind them that they are obliged to answer these questions: 2691 to 2709; 2904 to 2922; and 2924, 2925 and 2926. I also ask for your assistance in writing to the Prime Minister, the Minister for Trade, the Minister for Foreign Affairs and the Minister representing the Minister for Justice and Customs on matters that were raised in question Nos 2927, 2928, 2929 and 2930 regarding the Bali nine. All these questions have been outstanding for more than 100 days.
