Senator ROBERT RAY (Manager of Government Business in the Senate)(10.28) —I say for the benefit of Senator Hill and other honourable senators that the Government proposes to bat on until lunchtime. If Senator Hill then thinks that there continues to be a major problem we will seek, at the appropriate time after lunch, or maybe tomorrow, to deal with the wheat marketing legislation. We will see how we go until a quarter to one. If Senator Hill still has a problem I suggest he see me and we will have a look at dealing with some other business this afternoon.

The CHAIRMAN —Order! Returning to where we were some time ago, the Committee has agreed to take the Australian Securities Commission Bill and the Corporations Bill together and as a whole. I propose to give an opportunity to honourable senators to move the amendments in the order listed on the paper circulated. This is not in any way binding on the Committee. The first amendment is in the name of the Australian Democrats.
