I had Senator Sheldon next.

Senator Canavan interjecting—

Senator Canavan, allow me to speak. Senator Canavan, this is what the whips gave me, and I understand this has been cleared by the government whip.

Senator Canavan interjecting—

With respect, Senator Canavan, that is Senator Griff.

Senator Canavan interjecting—

Senator Canavan, please resume your seat. The custom in here is that we go by the list. I accept that a senator who stands to seek the call must be given the call. I am trying to abide, by custom and practice, with what the government, Senator Griff and the opposition have put forward, but if you are pressing the point then I will call you, Senator Canavan.
