Senator COTTON (New South Wales) (Minister for Civil Aviation) Mr President, I shall make just a brief observation. Senator Murphy might perhaps have availed himself of the opportunity of indicating that he intended to do this and might perhaps have gone on discussing the matter for a little while. It might have been proper to do this so that the appropriate Minister could have come back. I understand the tactical device being used. Senator Murphy, by his motion, is seeking to postpone consideration of the Bill. The Government naturally opposes that. We will vote against the motion. I think his request for a division should proceed.

Question put:

That the motion (Senator Murphy's) be agreed to.
