Senator O'BRIEN (3:42 PM) —The Opposition is relaxed about this matter. We understood that the government was anxious for the matter to be dealt with as expeditiously as possible and, of course, I can interpret from other happenings in the chamber that the timetable of the committee is a matter which probably needs some consultation with the committee. But I indicate that the opposition supports this, given that there was understanding that the committee would deal with it in the time available to them, and that if they had a problem, they would come back to the Senate.

Amendment agreed to.

Motion, as amended, agreed to.
