Leave granted.

Senator GALLAGHER: The opposition wishes to hear a personal explanation from Senator Hanson and Senator Burston and will grant leave for this purpose. Before granting leave to the government to have the question put again on the second reading, as I had understood, had been explained to the government.

Senator Cormann: Yes.

The PRESIDENT: Is it acceptable to Senator Hanson and Senator Burston?

Senator Hanson: Yes.

Senator Burston: Yes.

The PRESIDENT: I call Senator Burston to make an explanation.
