Senator WONG (South AustraliaLeader of the Opposition in the Senate) (15:51): I seek leave to make a statement of no more than three minutes.

Leave granted.

Senator WONG: In the Leader of the Government in the Senate's contribution a number of matters with which we do not agree were asserted. I simply say to the Senate this: the approach that the opposition is taking is being taken on the advice of the Clerk and officers. We believe it is appropriate, particularly in a matter as sensitive as the privileges matter which we are discussing, that that be undertaken. So we stand by the text of the motion as drafted, upon which we received advice. We ask for your support.

Question agreed to.
