Mr President, I ask a further supplementary question. I refer to the Statement of Ministerial Standards, which requires Senator Sinodinos to provide an honest and comprehensive account of his conduct to the parliament. I also refer to his answer to my primary question, which was 'no'. I ask Senator Sinodinos this: can he explain evidence from Mr Nicolau and Mr Neeham before the Independent Commission Against Corruption which confirmed that the practice of prohibited donors making donations through the Free Enterprise Foundation was discussed at meetings of the finance committee, including when he was present?
