Senator BROWNHILL (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Trade and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Primary Industries and Energy)(11.42 a.m.) —by leave—Seeing that Senator Margetts wanted me to make a statement—which she has already made and which I have already interjected on—I will say that the government contacted Senator Margetts's office and eventually said that we would not be supporting her motion. I said that in my interjection. I think she also needs to realise that the National Consultative Committee on Animal Welfare also does a lot for animal welfare.

   Question put:

   That the motion (Senator Margetts's ) be agreed to.
