Senator COULTER —Mr President, I seek leave to table some documents. I do this because, in spirit, if not in fact, the adjournment debate has become both a valedictory and an adjournment debate.

  Leave granted.

Senator COULTER —I will not detain the Senate for more than about 30 seconds. I simply wish to table some documents.

Senator Panizza —I rise on a point of order. Mr President, we gave leave to table some documents. Is it possible for someone to speak twice on the adjournment?

The PRESIDENT —Are you only seeking leave to table the documents, Senator Coulter?

Senator COULTER —Yes. I am just giving a 30-second explanation of what the documents are so that it is on the record. I am not making a speech.

The PRESIDENT —Go ahead.

Senator COULTER —Several weeks ago I asked a question of Senator Collins in relation to export woodchip licences. I asked him whether he would table those licences. These are the licences. There is a great deal of interest in these licences. Therefore, I table them so that they become generally available. That is all I wish to say.

  Question resolved in the affirmative.

Senate adjourned at 1.58 a.m. (Friday) until 2.00 p.m. on Tuesday, 3 May 1994.
