I'll endeavour to be of assistance to colleagues, because we operate in real time in this place and we could all find ourselves, when presenting amendments, in a situation where the machinery is racing to catch up. I wonder if this may be of assistance: just looking at these two amendments sheets here, it looks to me as though it may have been the intention of the Australian Greens that the third amendment on sheet 8434 be circulated as a separate amendment, so that sheet 8432 stood as it was. If that's the case, then it might be possible for 8432 to be moved while amendment (3) on sheet 8434 comes as a separate amendment. I just offer that as a suggestion, as it may have been the intention of the instruction that the Greens gave.
