Days and Hours of Meeting
Thank you. I am not sure that Senator Macdonald was party to the conversation I am referring to, but I have asked the opposition and we did talk about how we might manage it. It is true that the opposition have always made it clear that they are not going to support a guillotine, but it was also made clear that we were looking to time manage the debate in order to get the bill today, because in the normal course of events it is possible that we may not get the bill today. We have very little time available for that purpose, so the approach has been about trying to manage that process.
