I seek an explanation from the minister representing the Minister for Home Affairs, Senator Watt, of the minister's failure to answer questions on notice 99 and 100, which are now overdue. In doing so, I acknowledge I gave him only about 10 minutes notice of my intention to do so, so I will not be surprised if he doesn't have the answers on him. I seek his assistance in achieving a timely resolution to these questions.

I thank Senator Paterson for the heads-up on this. I will, of course, seek an explanation from the minister and respond to the chamber.
