Senator CARRICK (New South WalesLeader of the Government in the Senate) - I am prepared to have discussions with the Australian Labor Party on a principle that consideration be given from both sides of the House, without fear or favour, for a proper extension of time equivalent to the time denied an honourable senator by the calling of a quorum. If that is what Senator Georges is asking, I am quite prepared now to concede that Senator McClelland be allowed to speak for the minute or a minute and a half due to him, but I would want a clear understanding from the Labor Party that it is talking in principle and not in terms of seeking partisan gain. I reject the threat implied in the last part of Senator Georges speech.
