Senator WONG (South AustraliaLeader of the Opposition in the Senate) (19:30): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The PRESIDENT: Is leave granted?

Senator Patrick: No.

The PRESIDENT: Leave is not granted.

Senator WONG: Seriously? I seek leave to make a statement for one minute.

The PRESIDENT: Senator Wong, I heard a voice dissenting, so I must move on.

Senator WONG: I ask that you ask again, Mr President.

The PRESIDENT: I'll ask the Senate's permission again. Is leave granted for Senator Wong to make a statement of one minute?

Leave granted.

Senator WONG: I thank the Senate. I will make public the indication that I have already given the government: the Labor Party is not supporting a guillotine or a gag on this debate, unlike Centre Alliance last week.
