ABSTAINED – Matters of Urgency — Budget

Louise Pratt

I rise only to correct an error of my own making, which was that I failed to lend my voice to our opposition to the urgency motion put by Senator Hume, because I was too busy thinking ahead about committee reports et cetera. We would have sought to oppose and divide on the question of the urgency motion put by the coalition. I seek leave to recommit for a vote the motion put by Senator Hume.

Leave granted.

Sue Lines

The question is that the urgency motion as moved by Senator Hume be agreed to.
