AGAINST – Business - Consideration of Legislation - Don't change day's order for MP of Berowra's bill

The majority voted in favour of disagreeing with a motion to suspend the usual procedural rules - known as standing orders - in order to let another vote take place. This means that second vote will not take place.

Motion text

That so much of the standing and sessional orders be suspended as would prevent the following from occurring immediately:

(1) the Member for Berowra presenting a Bill for an Act to amend the Criminal Code Act 1995, and for related purposes;

(2) debate on the second reading of the bill proceeding immediately for a period of no longer than one hour; and

(3) any questions required to complete the passage of the bill then being put without delay.
