Senator CANT (Western Australia) - by leave - While we are in the process of referring matters to the Standing Orders Committee, could the Leader of the Government (Senator Sir Kenneth Anderson) advise us whether it is possible to have standing order 64 considered by the Standing Orders Committee before the Com- mittee's timetable is cluttered up with other references to it?

Senator Sir KENNETHANDERSON (New South Wales - Minister for Supply) - by leave- It is my hope that before the end of this financial year there will be an opportunity for the Standing Orders Committee to consider standing order 64. That standing order will be on the Committee's agenda. I move:

That the following matter be referred to the Standing Orders Committee - That standing order 33A be amended as follows: At end of standing order add '; and also to inquire into and report upon matters concerning rights, responsibilities, obligations and protection of senators and, in relation to proceedings of the Senate, of members of the public, which may be referred to it by the Senate".

Question resolved in the affirmative.
