Senator WONG (South AustraliaLeader of the Opposition in the Senate) (12:40): Acting Chair, I just wonder if the government could indicate how long Senator Brandis would be. In terms of the expeditious handling of this legislation—I do not agree with anything that Senator Ludlam, I am sure, will be putting to the chamber—it just seems that we are in a position where we are likely to have a double handling of it, where the same questions might, indeed, be asked again of Senator Brandis. If he is going to be a while, I wonder whether the government might want to consider how they want to handle that.
