Senator CAVANAGH (South AustraliaMinister for Aboriginal Affairs) - I think that this matter needs study. Mr President, you are looking into the matter. I would not like you to give a direction without the Senate having the opportunity to debate the proposed unusual practice of allowing Hansard to be marked in such a way as to refer back to an earlier matter. Senator Webster raised this matter tonight. I do not know whether the words used were 'I know' a man, 'I knew of a man or anything else, but Senator Webster certainly referred to the matter. Now he wants an asterisk inserted to refer the reader back to something else. I think that his request needs study.

The PRESIDENT - I will take the Minister's remarks into consideration.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Senate adjourned at 7.3 p.m.
