  • ### Motion text
  • > *That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the motion being moved immediately and determined without amendment or debate.*
  • <p>Is there any objection to this motion being taken as formal? There is. Formality is denied, Senator Hanson.</p>
  • <p class="speaker">Pauline Hanson</p>
  • <p>Pursuant to contingent notice, I move:</p>
  • <p class="italic">That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the motion being moved immediately and determined without amendment or debate.</p>
  • <p class="speaker">Scott Ryan</p>
  • <p>As senators know, we now put those motions without the traditional debate in this section of the day. The question is to suspend standing orders to deal with matter No. 612.</p>
