The PRESIDENT - Earlier today Senator Georges asked me a question relating to his rights in connection with a certain letter. I advise him as follows: An honourable senator may move for the tabling of papers and this procedure is governed by standing order 358. Notice is required of such a motion and the motion would be open to debate. If a paper were tabled notice of motion could be given with reference to the subject matter of the tabled paper. Apart from these proceedings an honourable senator may exploit other procedures such as a personal explanation, an urgency motion, a debate on the first reading of a money Bill, or a debate on the motion for the adjournment of the Senate. In addition, where matters of privilege may be involved, standing orders 1 1 8, and 425 to 427 may be invoked.
