The PRESIDENT - The immediate question is, "That the matter be disposed of forthwith ". I shall put that question.

Senator Cohen - Mr. President, 1 wish to speak.

Senator McKenna - Mr. President, Senator Cohen has indicated that he wishes to speak now.

The PRESIDENT - Order! There can be no debate on the question that I shall now put to the Senate.

Senator McKenna - This is a matter of some importance and I have addressed myself to it only briefly at this stage. I ask for leave for Senator Cohen, who sponsored this matter, to address himself to the motion I have moved.

The PRESIDENT - A motion of dissent from my ruling has been moved by the Leader of the Opposition, who has moved further that it be dealt with forthwith. I propose to put the second part of the motion to the Senate now. It does not call for debate. Indeed, debate on it is not allowed under the Standing Orders. Ring the bells. (The bells being rung) -

Senator Paltridge - A division is not required.
