Mr President, I advise that Senator Sherry will be absent from question time today and tomorrow as he is unwell. As I advised party leaders in writing earlier today, Senator Stephen Conroy will answer questions on Senator Sherry’s responsibilities as Assistant Treasurer and as the Minister representing the Treasurer. Senator Joe Ludwig will represent Senator Sherry on financial services, superannuation and corporate law, competition policy and consumer affairs. Senator Kim Carr will represent Senator Sherry on agriculture, fisheries and forestry.
