Senator SIDDONS(5.33) —I thank the Leader of the Opposition (Senator Chaney) for his explanation as to the reason for the delay in the procedure which would have enabled me to table a plan for a Bill on youth unemployment which, as we have just heard, is a critical issue. It is a practical plan. Unfortunately, Senator Chaney did not indicate what sort of time limit would be involved in referring this procedure to the Standing Orders Committee. I wonder whether he could address that question. If there is an extended delay in the procedure, I believe that some other approach will be necessary for the Democrats to get a practical plan on youth unemployment before the Senate.
