Pursuant to standing order 75, I propose that the following matter of public importance be submitted to the Senate for discussion:

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT: I understand that informal arrangements have been made to allocate specific times to each of the speakers in today's debate. With the concurrence of the Senate, I shall ask the clerks to set the clock accordingly.
