Senator COATES(9.58) —by leave-I move:

That leave be granted to the Standing Committee on Finance and Government Operations to meet during sittings of the Senate in May 1984.

This motion is necessary because the reference from the-(Quorum formed). I wish that Senator Walters had better things to do with her time than call quorums continually. The reason for the motion is the reference to the Senate Standing Committee on Finance and Government Operations of the Income Tax Assessment Amendment Bill (No. 2) 1984. It was referred by the Opposition, with the deadline for us to report back being 31 May. The only way in which we shall be able to do that is to sit while the Senate is sitting this week and in the sitting week after the recess.
