Senator CARR(11.47 a.m.) —I seek clarification of precisely what the position is before the chair at this stage.


The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT —As the chair understands it, Senator Woodley's amended motion omits the word `forthwith' and substitutes `after business of the Senate order of the day No. 5'. As I understand it, that would have precedence over other matters until 2 p.m. and again at 4.30.


Senator CARR —As I understand it, at 4.30 general business will come on. The effect of this motion will not be to take precedence over general business at 4.30.


The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT —The chair understands that it will take precedence over all other business at 4.30.
