Senator HARRADINE (9:44 AM) —by leave—I do not know that there was any consultation about this with my office. It is important that we try and get some agreement as to sitting days. I also notice that there is no mention in this motion of the estimates committees. I think that it is vital to restore the number of days that we used to have on estimates committees. Tracking down the money trail is a very important aspect of our functions in this place. I think that is very important. I would hope that, when consideration is given to these sorts of things, we do restore the number of estimates days to the number we previously had. I think they have been cut by at least one, if not two.
