Senator FIFIELD (VictoriaManager of Government Business in the Senate and Assistant Minister for Social Services) (12:31): Mr Deputy President, I seek leave to make a short statement. It is a point of clarification on a procedural matter.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Is leave granted for Senator Fifield?

Senator Conroy: For seeking clarification, sure.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Order! Leave is granted.

Senator FIFIELD: When Senator Whish-Wilson was moving his amendment there was some confusion in relation to the call. The government was intending to support the amendment of Senator Whish-Wilson.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Are you seeking leave to have that question put again?

Senator FIFIELD: Yes.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Is leave granted to recommit the question on the amendment moved by Senator Whish Wilson?

Senator Wong: Yes.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Leave is granted, so we will just go back a step. The question is that the amendment moved by Senator Whish-Wilson to general business notice of motion No. 870 be agreed to.
