Senator PARRY (11:08 AM) —Mr President, I seek leave to make a short statement.


The PRESIDENT —Leave is granted.


Senator PARRY —Could I just indicate to the chamber, because of some of the falsehoods just being presented, that the CPRS has not appeared on the Order of Business for two days in a row—neither yesterday nor today. We are ready to debate this bill after consideration of the urgent legislation that the government particularly wants to achieve. There are budget measures, appropriations bills, and they need to be passed. I ask this question: what would have happened if we had not provided time for these bills to be debated?
