Senator Murphy- In the absence of the Leader of the Government in the Senate (Senator Sir Kenneth Anderson) I indicate that this morning during the placing of business Senator Sir Kenneth Anderson indicated for the benefit of the Senate that if it concurred we would proceed through the matters on the notice paper to see which matters it was desired to retain and which matters it was desired to dispose of either by way of discharge or by putting the question. The Minister for Air (Senator Drake-Brockman) has suggested that we start with orders of the day. The first order of the day relates to Commonwealth and State Revenue - a proposed joint select committee. It is an adjourned debate on the motion of Senator Little. Senator Durack was in continuation. I ask the Minister whether it is convenient to take this view?

Senator Drake-Brockman - Perhaps I can carry on where Senator Murphy left off and indicate the matters which the Government believes should be disposed of or taken note of. I believe that order of the day No. 1, Commonwealth and State Revenue, proposed Joint Select Committee, should stay on the notice paper unless Senator Little indicates otherwise.

Senator Little - I have no objection to that being removed from the notice paper.

Motion (by Senator Drake-Brockman) agreed to:

Thai order of the day No. 1 be discharged.

No. 2 Australian Capital Territory - Joint Committee - Report on the Milk Industry

Adjourned debate on the motion: That the Senate take note of the report.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
