I wish to correct a point on the record in case I mislead the Minister, his officials or the RSA. Since I raised my case on the Order of Business, I got a date in January and am, therefore, off the hook. When I first contacted the NCT authorities using the general set-up, they said my test date would be in the middle of March, meaning my certificate would expire.

I acknowledge that the Minister attempted to contact our spokesman on transport, Senator Ned O'Sullivan, who is unavoidably absent this evening. I was told only at 3 p.m. that I was to take this Bill. In the interest of fairness, I would have liked to have met the Minister beforehand but what has occurred was not his fault or mine. It is just something that happened.
