Senator WATERS (QueenslandCo-Deputy Leader of the Australian Greens) (15:40): Thank you very much, Mr President. I am sorry to detain the chamber. I have been in communication but I understand the relevant person is sick. So the negotiation has stalled. I seek leave to move an amendment to add some additional paragraphs to the proposal, which I understand were under active consideration, but, unfortunately, I have not heard back.

The PRESIDENT: Senator Waters, now that we have established what you want to do, I do not think you are going to get leave. What might facilitate everything in the chamber is if we put this further down the list—in fact, the bottom of the list. And, if you wanted to see if you can get some information circulated to at least the two major whips, I think that might facilitate it. So we will defer this one for the moment, if the chamber is happy. If there is no objection to that course of action, then that is what we will do.
