Senator PARRY (10:01 AM) —by leave—I trust this will be my last contribution on  this. On that basis, the coalition will support that provision. We are clearly on the record, since May of this year, indicating that the government has not allocated enough sitting weeks, early enough, for us to plan. We do not want to facilitate additional hours for the government. We are not going to cover up for their mismanagement of not extending hours. This is a significant issue and, for that purpose only, the coalition will support the additional half-hour of sitting.

Question agreed to.
