AGAINST – Bills — Migration Amendment (Removal and Other Measures) Bill 2024; Consideration in Detail

Milton Dick

Under the provisions of the resolution we shall now move to all remaining stages.

A division having been called and the bells being rung—

The Leader of the Australian Greens?

Adam Bandt

My understanding is that the member for Warringah had circulated a detailed amendment and that under the resolution that had been passed that question had to be considered.

Milton Dick

Under the resolution, the amendments weren't moved, so they're unable to be under the terms of the resolution.

Zali Steggall

And Mr Speaker, respectfully, you didn't see that I sought the call, and you moved straight to the first reading vote, when the situation was that I had clearly circulated that amendment and I was seeking the call to move a consideration-in-detail amendment, as the opposition just did. There had been an indication that the opportunity would be there to do that, from the government. So, I would seek a proper consideration-in-detail process by which the amendment can be moved.

Milton Dick

I wasn't aware of any arrangements between the government and the member. Just allow me to do what's before the House at the moment, and then I will come back to the member.

The question before the House right now is that the bill be agreed to.
