Senator FAULKNER (Manager of Government Business in the Senate) —by leave—I think there has been an understanding on both sides of the chamber, including the minor party and independent senators, that there will be an opportunity for full debate on this matter at a later stage. That opportunity will occur at the beginning of the next sittings.

  It was the intention of the Procedure Committee that this document come before the Senate in this form so that honourable senators would have an opportunity over the break to read and digest it. As Manager of Government Business in the Senate, it is my intention to give notice of the appropriate changes to standing orders. There is no intention to block debate on these issues, which are of interest to all honourable senators.
