I join others in calling on the Leader to arrange a debate on the economy in the wake of the visit of Commissioner Rehn. As Senator Ormonde mentioned, there has been some debate on the definition of "consensus". Clearly, there is no consensus, but having listened to Senator Boyle and others, I am worried that the Government's definition of "consensus" is that the Opposition should roll over, take whatever the Government will give it in the budget and abstain from voting. That is not consensus.
