Senator HARRADINE(10.37) —This motion, if passed, may result in these Bills being hastened through the chamber. But then again, this may not be the case. I will speak to this formal motion in order to lay something on the table. As I understand it, there may be a move to bring back before the Senate the superannuation tax package of Bills after the Customs package of Bills has been dealt with. I feel that that would not be appropriate. I for one do not know what amendments we will be faced with in the superannuation package. I have read in the press of arrangements that have been made between the Australian Democrats and the Government. I do not know what those arrangements are. The Table Office does not have a copy of the amendments; I do not have a copy of the amendments; no-one seems to have a copy of the amendments other than the Minister and the Democrats. I think it would be unfair-I hope the Leader of the Government in the Senate (Senator Button) understands this-for us to have to consider in detail any amendment without having sufficient time to have a look at it prior to the debate coming on.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
