by leave—Once again, Mr President, I indicate the coalition's opposition to this bill for the reasons outlined: given the time constraints foisted upon the Senate by the Green-ALP majority, we have no option but not to divide to at least allow three minutes on the next bill.

Question agreed to.

Bill read a third time.
