On behalf of Senator Patrick, I seek leave to move items (6) to (14) on sheet 1214 together.

Leave not granted.

Okay, I'll move them one by one. This is the deletion of the schedules. The government is now in a fit of pique because they want to move their own amendments to gut their bill, rather than Senator Patrick's amendments to gut their bill, now requiring that they not be moved together. Is the government really going to be that petty? In which case, on behalf of Senator Patrick, I oppose schedule 2 in the following terms:

(6) Schedule 2, page 20 (line 1) to page 36 (line 6), to be opposed.
