FOR – Committees — Legislation Committees; Reference

Katy Gallagher

I ask that government business notice of motion No. 1, relating to the reference of time-critical bills to legislation committees, be taken as formal.

Sue Lines

Is there any objection to this motion being taken as formal?

Pauline Hanson


Sue Lines

There is an objection.

Katy Gallagher

Pursuant to contingent notice, I move:

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the motion being moved immediately and determined without amendment or debate.

Sue Lines

The question is that the motion moved by Senator Gallagher to suspend standing orders be agreed to.
