Senator CAMPBELL (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for the Environment and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Sport, Territories and Local Government)(6.43 p.m.) —I table a supplementary explanatory memorandum relating to the amendments to be moved by the government and the Australian Democrats to this workplace relations bill. For the information of honourable senators, this memorandum was circulated in the chamber on 28 October 1996. Therefore, it is just a tabling of that document that has been circulated.

In answer to Senator Sherry's question, the government is quite happy to deal with schedule 4 after, I think, schedule 15. There may be some alterations to the running sheet in relation to schedule 5 to make it easier for the Senate to debate cognately.


Senator Sherry —Our whip has just drawn my attention to the fact he did not have a running sheet. I am not being critical of anyone but, given the enormous number of amendments, the complexity and the difficulties we could fall into, I suggest we consider making running sheets more widely available.


The CHAIRMAN —The running sheet will be more widely circulated.


Senator Harradine —Mr Chairman, I have now received a copy of the running sheet. Could I please be informed again of what was proposed by Senator Campbell?
