The PRESIDENT - Senator Davidson,you have not asked a question.

Senator Rae - I have not asked a question either.

The PRESIDENT - No, but Senator Davidson has been sitting here since the beginning of question time. You understand, Senator Rae, that I try to farm out the questions equally between the 4 different parties in this place, alternating between each party and according some sort of priority to honourable senators of each party in order to maintain the balance. I am aware that each honourable senator regards himself or herself as having a priority over every other honourable senator when it comes to asking questions. I maintain my fairness as best I can. I would be grateful if you would acknowledge that.

Senator Rae - I would like to acknowledge it and indicate that I was drawing your attention to something and not in any way challenging what you had said. That was my sole purpose in doing what I did.

The PRESIDENT - I am sorry, Senator Rae. I am grateful to you. I call Senator Davidson.
