Mr PRICE (5:05 PM) —by leave—I present the whips general principles relating to the selection of committee and delegation reports and private members’ business. In presenting the report I point out to all honourable members that this has been agreed to by the Chief Opposition Whip and me. It is, in the main, consistent with that used by the Selection Committee—that is, that the whips shall accord priority to private members’ business, with the addition of 2(d)—‘in a manner that ensures appropriate participation by independent members’. If some members have a view that the guidelines could be improved, I can say on behalf of the Chief Opposition Whip and my own behalf that we are more than happy to entertain them.
