I apologise to Senator Cox and the President, because I was just distracted, but I would raise again that it doesn't sound to me like this is a supplementary question from the original question. In fact, the treaty—TPNW—is probably better addressed to my portfolio, not the resources portfolio, and a number of others have raised it. Certainly I don't recall the treaty being discussed in the primary question. Obviously, the minister can answer what he's able to in his portfolio, but I again request that we look at whether or not supplementary questions are in fact supplementary.
