Senator IAN CAMPBELL (10:15 AM) —I move:

That consideration of this bill in the Committee of the Whole be made an order of the day for a later hour this day.

We are seeking to delay consideration of the Native Title Amendment Bill 1997 [No. 2] in committee because the clerks in the Table Office who are preparing the running sheet—which, honourable senators would know, is a very detailed matter with this bill because there is a range of amendments from all sides of the chamber—have informed us that that task will take at least another hour, possibly an hour and a half. In discussions we have agreed that it would be sensible to move on to another piece of legislation while that running sheet is being prepared. That is the reason behind this motion.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
