Mr HURFORD (Adelaide) - I wish to say briefly that the Opposition is not opposing this motion because we believe the timetable that we have received will be adhered to. We still hope that the Government will be allowing more than 6½ hours Budget debate this year, which is all that it would seem at the moment it will be allowing if the debate is to be terminated on our first day back after the week's recess. There has been no announcement of an election. We can see no reason why the term should be shortened. We trust that after this week off we will have not only that full three weeks that has already been indicated in a program in which to discuss and scrutinise the Budget, but also that after a further week off, we will have a further three weeks of sitting of this Parliament.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
