by leave—I would like to inform the Senate that later today it is the government's intention to table a sitting calendar for the remainder of this year. Given that, I would ask the Senate to consider deferring consideration of general business notices of motion 561 and 575 until a later hour today, but I make a commitment on behalf of the government that, after we have tabled and initiated this sitting calendar for the remainder of the year, if any senator still wishes to proceed with either of those motions, the government will be giving leave for that to be considered at that time.

I will make that observation when we are at that point.
