Mr ALBANESE (Grayndler) (3.19 p.m.)—On indulgence, I seek information from the acting Leader of the House on the programming of business. Can the acting leader confirm that today’s only business conducted in the Main Committee was 1½ hours of members’ three-minute statements and that tomorrow the Main Committee will not sit at all because there is simply no government business? After 11 long years of government, does this demonstrate that the government is out of ideas and out of legislation? Is there no work for us to do?
Leader of the Australian Labor Party, MP for Grayndler, Rabbitohs Life Member. Authorised by Anthony Albanese, ALP, Canberra.
