The CHAIRMAN —I call Senator Gareth Evans.

  Senator Ian Macdonald—Mr Chairman, on a point of order: I am in the middle of a series of questions to Senator Collins about a particular matter. Senator Evans blows into the chamber, I think for the first time this morning, and expects to get precedence.

The CHAIRMAN —Senator Macdonald, the courtesies which have been extended in the chamber since day one are that the Leader of the Government or the Leader of the Opposition get first call, so I am extending the normal courtesies that are required of me.
