Title

  • Bills — Statute Update (Regulations References) Bill 2020; Third Reading
  • Statute Update (Regulations References) Bill 2020 - Third Reading - Let a vote happen

Description

  • <p class="speaker">Tony Smith</p>
  • <p>The question now is that the motion moved by the minister to suspend standing orders be agreed to.</p>
  • The majority voted in favour of a [motion](https://www.openaustralia.org.au/debate/?id=2020-02-26.130.1) to let a vote happen. In parliamentary jargon, they voted in favour of suspending the usual rules - known as [standing orders](https://peo.gov.au/understand-our-parliament/how-parliament-works/parliament-at-work/standing-orders/) - which means the [third reading motion](https://peo.gov.au/understand-our-parliament/how-parliament-works/bills-and-laws/making-a-law-in-the-australian-parliament/) - the vote on whether to pass the bill - can take place "without delay".
  • ### Motion text
  • > *That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the motion for the third reading being moved without delay.*
