Senator WONG (South AustraliaLeader of the Opposition in the Senate) (10:08): by leave—I indicate the opposition's broad agreement with the approach taken by the government. We think it is reasonable, given the documents that you have just tabled, Mr President, for senators who may only have been reading about these matters in the press to be able, should they wish, to appraise the documents which have been tabled prior to the motions being discussed. I thank the government for taking up that suggestion, and we indicate our agreement to proceeding with the debate at 12.30.

The PRESIDENT: I thank the Leader of the Government in the Senate and the Leader of the Opposition for that information. I assume that leave will be sought later in the day to facilitate that.
