Mr ALBANESE (Grayndler—Leader of the House and Minister for Infrastructure and Transport) (15:07):  Madam Deputy Speaker, I seek the indulgence of the chair to add to an answer.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER:  The minister may proceed.

Mr ALBANESE:  Today I was asked by the Chief Government Whip about the impact on domestic airlines of the price on carbon, and I quoted a media release from Ian Vanderbeek from Aeropelican and Brindabella Airlines. Just to put some of this in context, I will table the AEC return from 2009-10 disclosing a donation to the National Party of $13,200 and the AEC return from 2010-2011 from the National Party, indicating a donation to the National Party of Australia of a further $8,000.
