Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Wight - Order! The remarks of the honorable member for Melbourne Ports are not applicable to the bill that is now before the House.

Mr CREAN - I am simply using the procedures of the House, Mr. Deputy Speaker, to ask whether at this stage the Government will indicate what will happen if the Opposition agrees to the passage of this bill. If this bill is agreed to, is it proposed that we should proceed to debate a motion for the adjournment of the House?

Mr Opperman - Yes.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time, and passed through its remaining stages without amendment or debate.

Mr Duthie - Mr. Deputy Speaker, I had intended to speak to the motion for the third reading. The Minister for Shipping and Transport, who is in charge of the bill, did not move that it be read a third time.

Mr Opperman - I did.
