The PRESIDENT - Order! Earlier this morning Senator Marriott asked me a question in relation to the Senate business paper. Since then I have made inquiries through the Clerk of the Senate about the matter raised by the honourable senator. The Senate business paper has now been distributed to honourable senators. Honourable senators will see that it is a fairly lengthy document, and the reason for its delay is the shortage of staff in the printing area. A technical problem was involved in the reproduction, which was the cause of its not being circulated at the time when the Senate met. The responsibility for this falls on my shoulders and I apologise to honourable senators for the business paper not being available earlier.
