Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (Western Australia) (Minister for Air) - I move:

That Orders of the Day Nos. 1 to 4 - Government Business - be postponed until after further consideration of Order of the Day No. 5.

I move this motion for 3 reasons. Firstly, the Government has given an undertaking to debate Senator Murphy's urgency motion at a later hour today. Secondly, if we had got the urgency motion out of the way, the Senate would normally have gone down the business list to reach Order of the Day No. 1 which is the debate on the first reading of the Income Tax Bill 1972. During the course of that debate some senators took the opportunity to raise the matter of Jetair Australia Ltd. Some honourable senators who are yet to speak may raise the question of Jetair Australia Ltd and the papers connected with that company which have just been tabled by the Minister for Works (Senator Wright). The third reason for the motion is that the Aged Persons Homes Bill, which is Order of the Day No. 5, must come into operation by the 10th October. If we do not deal with it in the order I propose and the Senate goes into recess next week, honourable senators will not have sufficient time to debate it.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
