I have two additional answers. In question time yesterday, I undertook to provide further information in response to questions asked of me by Senator Hume in my capacity as Minister representing the Prime Minister relating to the Minister for Regional Development, Local Government and Territories. I've written to the senator to provide additional information, and I table my letter to Senator Hume for the information of all senators.

I also indicate that, in the course of question time, the Leader of the Opposition advised me that Senator Payne in fact visited Timor-Leste in August of 2019, so I correct the record on that answer.
