I remind senators that yesterday evening two votes were deferred as listed at item 15 on today's order of business. I understand it suits the convenience of the Senate to hold those votes now. I will deal first with the closure motion moved by Senator Watt concerning a proposed reference to the Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport References Committee. For the sake of clarity, if the closure motion is not agreed to, the motion will be called on again for further debate at item 22 of today's order of business. The question will now be put.
The question is that the closure motion be agreed to.
