The PRESIDENT - The chair does not know the arrangements that are made between one side of the Senate and the other. If an honourable senator has the call on the first reading of a money Bill he is entitled to proceed with his speech. Unless some other arrangement can be made Senator Wood now is entitled to proceed.

Senator Cotton - I involve myself by speaking to this point of order or explanation, call it what you will. This procedure really is designed to make the processes of our life here work a little more smoothly. The first Bill, which I take to be the Customs TariffBill 1974, has been postponed for the time being on the initiative of the Government. Now we are dealing with Customs Tariff Bill (No. 2) 1974.

The PRESIDENT - I think we had better get this matter in order. Is the honourable senator seeking leave to make an explanation?
