Senator CAVANAGH (South AustraliaMinister for Aboriginal Affairs) - by leaveBecause of the change in the hours of the sitting of the Senate and because of the amount of the Government business at present on the notice paper it is not now proposed that Estimates Committees D and E should meet tomorrow. 1 point out that among the arguments advanced in favour of reducing the hours of sitting of the Senate on Tuesdays and Thursdays was the one that committee meetings could be held in the evenings. Another fact to be considered is that most of the Estimates Committees have now done portion of their work and have only the examination of one of two departments to complete. Senate

Estimates Committee F, which is an exception, will meet on Monday, 12 November, from 2 p.m. until 10 p.m. I think that by then it will be able to finalise the examination of the departments allocated to it. Therefore it is proposed that Estimates Committees A and C will meet on Tuesday, 6 November, from 8.30 p.m. to- 10.30 p.m. and Estimates Committees D and E will meet on Thursday, 8 November, from 8.30 p.m. until 10.30 p.m.
