Senator MURPHY (New South WalesLeader of the Government in the Senate) - I move that the debate-

Senator Missen - I desire to speak on this matter.

Senator MURPHY - I simply want to move that the debate be adjourned so that honourable senators might have an opportunity to consider the report because it is hardly fair to engage in a debate on the matter when most honourable senators have not read it.

Senator Carrick - Would you provide an early opportunity?

Senator MURPHY - Yes, we would want to do that. I move:

That the debate be now adjourned.

The PRESIDENT - Senator Missen,do you wish to take a point of order?

Senator Missen - Yes.

The PRESIDENT - You will not be able to speak to the motion but only raise a point of order.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Motion (by Senator Murphy) proposed:

That the resumption of the debate be made an order of the day for the next day of sitting.
