Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport References Committee, Tobacco Harm Reduction Select Committee; Membership

In accordance with the standing orders, a ballot will be held to determine which one of the two senators who have nominated is to be appointed. I understand it is the wish of the Senate that the ballot be held tomorrow morning at a time to be determined.
