Senator LUDWIG (Special Minister of State and Cabinet Secretary) (10:00 AM) —by leave—I will deal with the last matter first. That is the standard way the orders are written. Of course the adjournment is proposed from 9.50 pm, as is always the case on that particular day, and that is the way it has always been reflected in the past. I can indicate that the matter of seeking to start at 12 noon to synchronise with the House of Representatives is about allowing time for that particular matter I raised earlier to be dealt with in a sensitive way and to allow discussions to continue. This is the last day that we can put in place arrangements for that to occur. If the time is not needed then we will talk to you about what we might usefully use the time for.
