Senator BUTTON (Minister for Industry, Technology and Commerce)(11.20) —I thank honourable senators for their contributions to the adjournment debate. I congratulate Senator Peter Rae on his contribution. I think it was one of the most important speeches he has made here in the last couple of years.


Senator Peter Rae —At least it drew a response from you for once.


Senator BUTTON —That is what I am doing. Let me finish. I heard Senator Aulich's speech and I thought it was very fine. It had a lot of emotional content. I think he was probably exhausted and left the chamber for that reason.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Senate adjourned at 11.20 p.m.
