Senator CAVANAGH (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Mr President, my question is directed to you. I ask you where you obtain the power for carrying out sessional orders of the Senate. I refer to the sessional order which requires the President to put the question 'that the Senate do now adjourn' at 10.30 o'clock on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. I point out that last evening you failed to put the question at the appropriate time as set out under sessional orders.

The PRESIDENT - I will give consideration to this matter at the end of question time and provide the honourable senator with an answer.
