The PRESIDENT -Is leave granted? There being no objection, leave is granted.

Senator Murphy - Mr President,there is a motion -

The PRESIDENT - That the report be printed.

Senator Murphy - Yes. I think Senator Cant indicated that he wanted to reply. Perhaps we can sort out the procedural difficulties in this matter. Senator Cant moved his motion that the report be printed during the course of the debate. If Senator Cant does not mind we could deal with the matters before the Senate together at the conclusion. But I think that he should have the right to reply.

The PRESIDENT - Senator Canthas a right to do that. If he elects to use his right he may speak either when he closes the debate on the motion that the report be printed, or to Senator Durack 's amended motion.

Senator DURACK - Pursuant to leave, I move:

That the particulars of proposed expenditure contained in division 890.1.04, division 890 subdivisions 2, 3 and 4, and division 891 relating to the Department of Minerals and Energy be recommitted to Estimates Committee F for consideration and report to the Senate by 22 November.

I have indicated in the remarks that I have already made the reasons for the motion. I do not propose to say any more.
