Senator LUDWIG (Manager of Government Business in the Senate) (12:06 PM) —What I was going to go on to say, while the Clerk obtains the bills that we can do, is that we are waiting for the messages for the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code Amendment Bill 2010, the Food Standards Australia New Zealand Amendment Bill 2010 and the Tax Laws Amendment (Confidentiality of Taxpayer Information) Bill 2009.


The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT (Senator Cash)—Minister, my understanding is that the third reading of the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code Amendment Bill has already occurred. We are still awaiting a message in relation to the Farm Household Support Amendment (Ancillary Benefits) Bill 2010.


Senator LUDWIG —Yes: the farm household support bill, the food standards bill and the tax laws amendment bill are three we are waiting on messages for. The remaining bills are the veterans affairs bill and the social security bill.


Senator Parry —It is agreed.


Senator LUDWIG —It is agreed? So we can proceed to veterans affairs now and then go to social security, appropriations and child care.


The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT —For the purpose of clarifying this for senators: we have called on the Electoral and Referendum Amendment (How-to-Vote Cards and Other Measures) Bill 2010. Are there any senators wishing to speak to this bill?
