Senator WILLESEE (Western Australia) - My understanding is that Senator Cavanagh suggested that the person presenting the petition would then move that it and all similar petitions be received. I think the other suggestion came later on in the debate.

The PRESIDENT - -If, for example. I called Senator Carrick, or Senator Brown, he would have to have a list of all the petitions.

Senator CAVANAGH(South Australia) - 1 think that one of the petitions should be presented and the names of other honourable senators presenting similar petitions should be identified with it.

The only thing about which I am concerned is that there should be a resolution of the Senate to receive the petitions. To my mind this gives satisfaction to the petitioner. It is not just simply a matter of reading the petitions; I think there should be a resolution of the Senate that we receive the petitions presented by petitioners.

The PRESIDENT - Order! In order to have this question posed properly, I will ask the Clerk to write it down. In the meantime, 1 call Senator Townley, who I understand has a petition to present on another matter altogether.
