AGAINST – Bills — Migration Amendment (Removal and Other Measures) Bill 2024; Third Reading

Milton Dick

Before I give the call to the member for Warringah, the question now is that this bill be now read a third time.

A division having been called and the bells being rung—

Zali Steggall

Mr Speaker, I sought to move a motion under standing order 154 prior to moving to the third reading. Standing order 154 says:

Before the third reading of a bill is moved, a Member may move without notice that a bill be reconsidered in detail, in whole or in part, by the House.

That is what I sought the call for, prior to it going to a vote on the third reading.

Milton Dick

I understand that under the resolution the standing orders have been suspended to enable this to occur.

Zali Steggall

Respectfully, Mr Speaker, we've passed the terms of the resolution. We've gone beyond the terms of that resolution.

Milton Dick

Well, as a result of the resolution, the stated questions now are being followed. We've done the agreements to the bill. Now we're doing the third reading, which I've called the division for, and the clock is running for one minute. Once that's concluded, we shall then move on and call the Clerk. This is the question on the third reading of the bill.
