Mr STEPHEN SMITH (PerthMinister for Defence and Deputy Leader of the House) (17:45): I have had the opportunity to speak to members interested in this message in the chamber. The member for Lyne has indicated that he sees a link between amendment (9) and amendment (13). The government is proposing to disagree to amendment (9). The member for Melbourne also wishes to speak on amendment (9). I think it would suit the convenience of the House if I dealt with amendments (1) to (8), (10) to (12), and (14) to (27) first. I think there is support for that. That is certainly the view expressed to me by the opposition. We can then deal with amendments (9) and (13) separately. There will be debate on those. I move:

That the amendments be considered immediately.

Question agreed to.
