Senator CHANEY (Leader of the Opposition)(10.08) —The Opposition wishes to maintain its ability to have a first reading debate on these Bills. Whether we will or not will depend on the state of play when the Bills come forward, but if it is more convenient for the Government to deal with them en bloc and for us to adjourn them all at first reading, that is satisfactory to us. Alternatively, we would like to adjourn those Bills which permit a first reading debate separately.
