Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Media)

That, unless otherwise ordered, for the remainder of this period of sittings the sessional order relating to the sittings of the Senate and precedence of business be varied as follows:

(   1 ) That Government business take precedence of general business on Thursdays.

(2)   That the sessional order relating to the adjournment of the Senate take effect at half-past ten p.m. each Thursday.

I do not intend to speak to the motion. I have had discussions on this matter with the Leader of the Opposition in the Senate (Senator Withers) and the Leader of the Australian Country Party in the Senate (Senator Drake-Brockman).

Question resolved in the affirmative.
