FOR – Parliamentary Zone — Proposed Works

Katy Gallagher

I ask that government business No. 2, standing in the name of Senator Chisholm, proposing the approval of works within the parliamentary zone, be taken as a formal motion.

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.

Question agreed to.

I move:

That, in accordance with section 5 of the Parliament Act 1974, the Senate approves the proposal by the National Capital Authority for capital works within the Parliamentary Zone relating to the John Gorton campus carpark.

Sue Lines

The question is that government business No. 2 as moved by Senator Gallagher, standing in the name of Senator Chisolm, be agreed to.
