Title

  • Motions Prime Minister
  • Motions - Prime Minister - Stop MP for Grittith from speaking

Description

  • <p class="speaker">Tony Smith</p>
  • <p>Is the motion seconded?</p>
  • <p class="speaker">Terri Butler</p>
  • The majority voted in favour of a [motion](https://www.openaustralia.org.au/debate/?id=2020-09-03.159.1) "*That the Member be no longer heard.*" In other words, the majority voted in favour of stopping MP for Griffith [Terri Butler](https://theyvoteforyou.org.au/people/representatives/griffith/terri_butler) (Labor) from speaking any further in this debate. These types of motions are known as *gagging motions*.
  • <p>I second the motion. This Prime Minister hates scrutiny. He tries to shut down debate constantly, and I bet he will do it again&#8212;</p>
  • <p class="speaker">Christian Porter</p>
  • <p>I move:</p>
  • <p class="italic">That the Member be no longer heard.</p>
  • <p class="speaker">Tony Smith</p>
  • <p>The question is that the member be no further heard.</p>
