Senator FAULKNER (Minister for Veterans' Affairs and Minister for Defence Science and Personnel) —I move:

(1)That at midnight tonight, the sitting of the Senate be suspended till 9.00 a.m. Friday, 17 December 1993; and

(2)That on Friday, 17 December 1993, the sitting of the Senate be suspended from 1.00 p.m. till 2.00 p.m. and 6.00 p.m. till 7.00 p.m.

This arrangement has been agreed with all parties—opposition, minor parties and independents—in the Senate to allow a substantial rest for senators before commencing tomorrow's heavy legislative workload. I think there is general agreement that this is an appropriate way for us to proceed, and I commend the motion to the Senate.

  Question resolved in the affirmative.
