AGAINST – Bills — New Vehicle Efficiency Standard Bill 2024, New Vehicle Efficiency Standard (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2024; Third Reading

Tony Burke

I seek leave of the House to move the third reading immediately.

Leave not granted.

I move:

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the motion of the third reading being moved without delay.

Bert Van Manen

On a point of order: could I have clarification from the minister? Excuse me for asking. If I'm out of order, please tell me I'm out of order. I just want to know whether you're closing down the bill, because I want to speak on that bill. Are you closing down the bill now? Is that what you're doing?

Tony Burke

The debate on the second reading has concluded. The second reading has been put. We've now sought leave of the House to continue with the third reading. Leave has been denied. This motion is to allow the third reading to be dealt with now. That's where we're up to.

Scott Buchholz

What I think has happened is that no-one jumped to speak on the second reading. So now we're going to the third reading. We're going to put that, and there will be an opportunity to speak during the third reading and potentially during consideration in detail. So I'll put that question before the House, brought by the minister.

Milton Dick

The question before the House is that the motion moved by the Leader of the House be agreed to.
