Mr HOCKEY (Manager of Opposition Business) (5:26 AM) —May I take the opportunity to thank the staff of the chamber and various other staff.

Honourable members interjecting—


Mr HOCKEY —I think it is important to thank the staff and various others who have stayed up all night. Given the fact that it is now 5.30 in the morning, and they will not get the opportunity to have a sleep—nor will many members of parliament—we will support this initiative to start the House at 10 o’clock, recognising it was the government’s desire to keep the House sitting.

Question agreed to.
