Senator MILLINER (Queensland) - Surely we have reached a ludicrous situation when a member of the Opposition, having heard the explanation that the Government at the request of the honourable senator's Party agreed to amend the clause, said some shocking things about the Minister for Primary Industry (Senator Wriedt), was positively rude and then asked the Minister to postpone consideration of the clause. The Minister said: 'No, I will not do so'. Then the back bench member of the Opposition moved that consideration of the clause be postponed. I believe that the situation is an intolerable one. To test the whole procedure and to do precisely the uncouth thing that was done this afternoon, I now move:

That the question be put.




Question resolved in the affirmative.

Question put:

That further consideration of clause 20 be postponed (Senator Wright's motion).
