Senator GARETH EVANS (Minister for Resources and Energy)(5.21) —Mr Chairman, might I just say in further comfort to Senator Harradine that what I was proposing to do was in effect to have the whole debate on the Opposition amendments. In responding to the Opposition amendments, I would foreshadow the Government's alternative and no doubt Senator Macklin will foreshadow the Australian Democrats' alternative. Hopefully we can have the debate on those amendments, deal with all the points and then just formally put and pass or reject, as the case may be, the series of motions in sequence at the end of what will be a single integrated debate on these matters.
