The President has received letters requesting changes in the membership of committees. There are two nominations for one position on the Select Committee on Tobacco Harm Reduction allocated to a minority group or Independent senators. In accordance with the standing orders, a ballot will be held to determine which one of the two senators who have nominated is to be appointed. I understand it is the wish of the Senate that the ballot be held tomorrow morning at a time to be determined.
