Mr TRUSS (Wide BayDeputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development) (09:06): Leave is not granted. The opposition did not choose to inform the government of this proposal. We are prepared to bring the debate on at the earliest possible opportunity, but if the opposition intended that there would be a full-scale debate they should have done us the courtesy of discussing that with us. The shadow minister has asked me to defer debate on other bills. I have been cooperative with him and have agreed to delay debate so that he could prepare himself for it. This was a very limited debate and, for that reason, leave is not granted.

The SPEAKER: Then the debate must be adjourned.
