Senator WITHERS (South AustraliaLeader of the Opposition in the Senate) - Before the question is put in relation to this motion, I would seek this opportunity to speak in relation to the placing of business.

Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Could the question on the motion be put first?

Senator WITHERS -No, otherwise I would be out of order. I state that I am not opposed to the motion. I use the opportunity to speak in relation to a matter. The Manager of Government Business in the Senate (Senator Douglas McClelland) will recall that my friend and colleague, Senator Sir Magnus Cormack, presented the Remuneration Bill (No. 2) 1974 [No. 2]. I think it is buried in the notice paper as item No. 18. Sir Magnus will not be present after lunch. But he has said that he will leave me in charge of his Bill. I was wondering whether the Minister could indicate that if Government business is dealt with in a reasonably expeditious style today and if some time is left over there may be an opportunity to call on the Bill presented by Senator Sir Magnus Cormack.
