Senator PARRY (Manager of Opposition Business in the Senate) (9:49 AM) —by leave—We gave leave for Senator Wortley to make a statement. It got a little bit political. Discovery of formal business is not the place to do this. We also gave leave for an amendment to the motion to be moved which had not been circulated or received earlier. We did that generously. I just remind the chamber that, unless we get the motions and the amendments given to us in writing in good time, we cannot support granting of leave for amendments and then have a political statement made afterwards.

Original question, as amended, agreed to.
