Mr President, I ask a supplementary question. Minister, when asked at Senate estimates a week after the AUSMIN discussions if Defence had consulted the United States about the lease, defence secretary Dennis Richardson said: 'No, we did not consult the United States.' Minister, how do you reconcile Mr Richardson's statement with your statements in answer to the last question?
