Senator JOYCE (Leader of the Nationals in the Senate) (9:53 PM) —Good luck on that one! The problem is that it is like waiting for Christmas: the present is wrapped up but we cannot actually determine what it is. However, we have to vote on this tomorrow.

Senator Hanson-Young —Have you been a good boy?
