Senator HILL (Leader of the Opposition) (5.16 p.m.) —I move:

  After paragraph (1), insert the following paragraph:

    "(1A) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to debate on any annual appropriation or supply bill.".

I argue, very briefly, that that is because of the serious consequences of such legislation, the technicality of it, and I think the overwhelming reason that 30 minutes should be allowed, if necessary.

  Question put:

  That the amendment (Senator Hill's) be agreed to.
