Hon. Senators, let us determine if we have a quorum although I can quite obviously see that we do not have a quorum.
I am informed that there is no quorum. I order that the Division Bell be rung.
Hon. Senators, we still have no quorum. So, I direct that the Bell be rung for another five minutes.
Hon. Senators, under Standing Order No.34(2), we still have no quorum. In the circumstances, the House stands adjourned until 2.30 p.m., today, Wednesday, 2nd October, 2013. The Senate rose at 9.15 a.m. The electronic version of the Senate Hansard Report is for information purposes only. A certified version of this Report can be obtained from the Hansard Editor, Senate.
