  • <p>May I seek some clarification of the procedural stage that we're presently at. My understanding is that the motion was just moved that we go to a rolling gag if we haven't dealt with this bill by 11.45 am, yet we're back on the bill now. Pardon my confusion, but what is going on?</p>
  • <p class="speaker">Stirling Griff</p>
  • <p>That was from 11.45 am.</p>
  • <p class="speaker">Larissa Waters</p>
  • <p>I believe we're partway through moving Greens amendments, so my colleague Senator Faruqi will now proceed to do that.</p>
  • <p>The TEMPORARY CHAIR: The Greens amendment has actually been moved, which is to oppose schedule 2. That is the question that is being put. The question is that schedule 2 of the Emergency Response Fund (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2019 stand as printed.</p>
