ABSTAINED – Business - Days and Hours of Meeting - Let a vote happen

The majority voted in favour of a motion to suspend the usual procedural rules - known as standing orders - to let another vote take place. It was introduced by ACT Senator Katy Gallagher (Labor).

Motion text

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent me moving a motion to provide for the consideration of a motion relating to the hours of meeting and routine of business immediately.
