Mr CHIPP (Hotham) - I must confess to the House that I am bewildered. I understood that there were two Bills before the House for debate, namely, the Sheltered Employment (Assistance) Bill and the Handicapped Children (Assistance) Bill. They are both listed on the notice paper and are bracketed on the blue sheet as being the subject of a cognate debate. The normal practice after the order of the day to be debated is read by the Clerk is for the question to be put by you, Mr Speaker, and then for the Leader of the House (Mr Daly) to ask whether it suits the convenience of the House to have a cognate debate. I was waiting for the Leader of the House to do that before rising in my place. May I proceed to make a speech on both Bills, Mr Speaker?
