Senator CAVANAGH (South AustraliaMinister for Aboriginal Affairs) - Firstly let me thank all those honourable senators who have tried to assist the Government in the vain hope that we would get this legislation through today. We have been debating this legislation now for some days and we knew that the clause we are now considering would be one which would be dealt with at length. Honourable senators no doubt will remember the previous occasion on which debate on similar amendments to the Conciliation and Arbitration Act was gagged. This is one Act in respect of which I do not think the gag should be applied and in respect of which it will not be applied by this Government.

Senator Donald Cameron - We sat up all night.
