Senator Sir KENNETH ANDERSON (New South Wales) (Minister for Health) - Mr President, I wish to indicate that I intend to move that the debate be adjourned. We have in fact got a little bit away from the normal procedure in respect to the putting down of reports.

Senator Keeffe -I am sorry about that.


Senator Sir KENNETHANDERSONI accept that there was a reason for doing so, namely, the existence of a dissenting report. In the light of what Senator Keeffe has said, I think that an adjournment of the debate should be sought and that the resumption of the debate should be made an order of the day for the next day of sitting in order to give those honourable senators who are not members of the Senate Standing Committee on Social Environment an opportunity to read this report. It will have to be brought on for debate at a later stage because a section of the procedures of the Senate is inherent in it. However, now is not the time to have such a debate. It is for that reason that I move:

That the debate be now adjourned.

Senator Cavanagh - We should have an early debate on it.


Question resolved in the affirmative.
