Senator CANT (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - J direct a question to you, Mr President. What procedures do you adopt when calling persons to speak on the motion for the adjournment of the Senate? At what time were you informed that Senator Murphy wished to speak on thai motion last night? At what time were you informed that Senator Webster wanted to speak on that motion last night? I advise you that at 4.30 p.m. yesterday I gave notice to the Deputy President that I wished to speak on that motion. Is the system of bureaucracy which operates in relation to the calling of senators to ask questions without notice operating also in relation to the calling of persons to speak on the motion for the adjournment of the Senate?


Mr PRESIDENT - I shall give Senator Cant's series of questions the deepest consideration in the next hour and reply to them later.
