Senator GRIMES (Manager of Government Business)(3.50) —I move:

That, unless otherwise ordered-

(1) Government Business take precedence of General Business on Thursdays.

(2) The hours of sitting of the Senate on Wednesday, 19 November 1986, and Thursday, 20 November 1986, be varied, as follows:

(a) Wednesday, 19 November 1986-

10 a.m.-12.45 p.m.

2 p.m.-6.30 p.m.

8 p.m.-10.30 p.m.; and

(b) Thursday, 20 November 1986-

10 a.m.-6.30 p.m.

8 p.m.-10.30 p.m.

(3) The Senate, at its rising on Thursday, 20 November 1986, adjourn till Tuesday, 25 November 1986, at 2 p.m.

I am aware of the fact that Senator Chaney proposes to move that we do not sit from 8 p.m. to 10.30 p.m. on Thursday night. I will not oppose that amendment. I think I was feeling a bit grouchy when I put that into the motion. I apologise to the Senate for doing so.
