AGAINST – Business — Rearrangement

Milton Dick

I wish to make a statement regarding the deferred division on the motion moved by the Manager of Opposition Business that the question be now put on the proposed suspension of standing and sessional orders moved by the Member for Berowra. Standing order 133(d) does not permit a motion for closure of question under standing order 81 to be moved during a period of deferred divisions. Consequently, the division that was called for and deferred until after the MPI will not take place. The proceedings will be resumed at the point of interruption so that the Manager of Opposition Business and the Minister for Education will have the opportunity to continue their remarks. The question before the House remains that the motion be agreed to.

Mark Butler

I move:

That the debate be adjourned.
