Mr SPEAKER —Last Thursday, the right honourable member for New England raised a query concerning the broadcast of the adjournment debate. For the information of members, I should clarify the position. It is true that for many years the adjournment debate was not broadcast, but this was changed in 1994 and since then the adjournment debate has been included in the broadcast. The application of privilege in respect of the broadcast of the adjournment debate is now the same as for other proceedings.
