The PRESIDENT —I wish to advise honourable senators that the printed copy of the daily Senate Hansard for last Saturday, 18 December, will be available within the next hour to an hour and a half. The electronic version is now on the parliamentary database service, accessible from the personal computers in senators' offices. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff of Hansard, the Sound and Vision Office and the Parliamentary Information Systems Office who worked throughout Saturday, and in some cases Sunday, to support the Senate—and I should include all parliamentary staff that worked at that stage.

  Senator Tambling—What about the Transport Office?

The PRESIDENT —I said all staff.

Senator HILL —I endorse those comments about the staff. It is a pity the government did not realise the consequences to the staff.
