Abolish the Office of Information Commissioner bill down the list; or out the door?

Nope, the Freedom of Information Amendment Bill is not listed in The Order of Business (pdf) for the Senate 2 December, but the list is subject to change. 

An amendment by Labor and The Greens to the innocuously titled Omnibus Repeal Day (Spring  2014) Bill that requires competetive tendering for Australia's replacement submarine contract sees the government crying foul over debate about this while its list of urgent business waits its turn. Whether the abolish the info commish bill is in that lot remains to be seen

Just two sleeps before parliament is scheduled to rise for the year.

Is that "Joy to the World" playing in the background?
