Senator Georges - May I seek an adjournment for a short time?

Senator Peter Baume - If I may explain, Senator Melzer attempted to move a motion earlier today which was in the same terms. It was the wrong way to proceed and the motion now being moved is the correct way to do what Senator Melzer attempted to do in this place earlier.
