Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Media) - As a result of discussions that took place this morning between myself, the Leader of the Opposition in the Senate, Senator Withers, and the Leader of the Australian Country Party, Senator Drake-Brockman, we had assumed that the debate on the Book Bounty Bill 1974 would take up the rest of the morning. I am given to understand by the Opposition that it is not ready to proceed with the Arbitration (Foreign Awards and Agreements) Bill 1974, the Conciliation and Arbitration (Organisation) Bill 1974 and other matters. It had been arranged that we would take the Australian Film Commission Bill 1974, the Arbitration (Foreign Awards and Agreements) Bill 1974 and the Conciliation and Arbitration (Organisation) Bill 1974 tomorrow. Because the Committee stage of the Book Bounty Bill 1974 has been deferred, I would suggest that the sitting of the Senate be suspended until approximately 10.15 p.m. this evening.
