Senator JACINTA COLLINS (VictoriaActing Manager of Opposition Business in the Senate) (17:28): I think, as Senator Marshall indicated earlier in the suspension debate, this is a contested and complex issue, and it's a matter that I know is being considered in forums outside of this place in terms of issues going forward within the chamber when there is little, if any, opportunity for senators to express a position, which is why formality is ordinarily granted. When matters are contestable, then there is difficulty for the program in the Senate. This is exactly the type of matter we considered earlier today. I know Senator Wong has some additional remarks that she should like to add in what I understand to be about the remaining five minutes of this debate.
