Senator FORSHAW (6:28 PM) —by leave—My statement is actually in the form of a question, and it relates to the comments of the parliamentary secretary a moment ago that this change had been brought about in part as a result of the extensive time that might be required for the second reading speeches at least on the Regional Forest Agreements Bill 1998, let alone the committee stage. From that, do I take it that it is not the government's intention to seek to bring on that bill for debate at all before we rise tomorrow night? If you can clarify that now, it would be of great assistance.
