Senator FIFIELD (VictoriaManager of Government Business in the Senate, Minister for Communications, Minister for the Arts and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Digital Government) (09:35): by leave—The process has not worked. I have just been advised that not only was it not circulated yesterday; it has not been circulated today. I am advised that there was an oversight. It has not been circulated. The purpose of circulation is so that the various groupings in the Senate can consult internally to determine their position. That opportunity has not been afforded.

The PRESIDENT: The question before the chair at the moment is that this committee be given authority to meet or not. If there are problems with the procedure that we currently have, can I suggest that the matter be raised at the Procedure Committee.
