The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT (Senator Childs) —Order! The time for consideration of government documents has expired. There are 45 committee reports and government responses listed for consideration on today's Notice Paper , and there is a limit of one hour for their consideration. Two of the reports listed are Privileges Committee reports, which have substantive motions attached to them.

To expedite the consideration of the documents I propose, with the concurrence of honourable senators, to call on the two Committee of Privileges reports first, followed by the remaining documents in groups of five. Documents called in each group to which no senator rises will be taken to be discharged from the Notice Paper. Documents not called today will remain on the Notice Paper. I would ask that as each senator rises they identify the document they wish to speak to by the number shown on the list in today's Order of Business.   There being no objection, it is so ordered.
