Senator IAN MACDONALD (11.38 p.m.) —Now that Senator Gareth Evans is back from his coffee break—


Senator Collins —Oh, God!


Senator IAN MACDONALD —I needed someone sensible here to answer my question. How long does Senator Evans intend to keep going tonight? We are rather concerned with the state of his health. From this side Senator Evans looks terrible and we certainly do not want to be the cause of some collapse that he might have. He has been taking it fairly heavily. Our compassion is not going to stop us—

  The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator McKiernan)—Order! Senator Macdonald, please resume your seat. The question before the committee is that amendments 20 and 21 be agreed to. I would ask honourable senators to address that question.
