Farrell in Senate

On Sunday an Austrade webpage reported this week’s mission  to India, including senior HE people, was being led by Trade Minister Don Farrell (CMM yesterday), but Monday Austrade said it wasn’t. Apparently the minister withdrew.

Senator Farrell was in the parliament yesterday. One reason he stayed might be that he was representing in the Senate,  the prime minister plus the ministers for foreign affairs, international development and the Pacific,  defence,  veterans’ affairs, defence personnel and defence industry.
