Senator McKIERNAN —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

  That the time for the presentation of the report of the Joint Standing Committee on Migration on detention practices be extended to 16 December 1993.

I seek leave to make a short explanation.

  Leave granted.


Senator McKIERNAN —The current reference of this matter to the committee requires the committee to report back to the parliament on the first sitting day in December. The sitting days of the House of Representatives and the Senate do not coincide. This really is a machinery motion to bring both sitting days into line.
