Concerning the motion that stands in my name, notice No. 5, I propose to move at this stage—because it is almost half past one—that No. 5 of government business be postponed until a later hour this day. To explain to the Manager of Opposition Business in the House—because I have not had the chance to discuss it with him—the motion was to allow Joko Widodo to address the parliament on the Thursday of the next sitting week. That has been moved to the Monday, as I understand it. As a consequence, that notice will no longer be moved. I will move the correct one at the appropriate time.

I thank the Leader of the House. The question is that the motion moved by the Leader of the House be agreed to.

Question agreed to.
