  • Motions Taxation
  • Motions - Taxation - Let a vote happen


  • <p class="speaker">Sue Lines</p>
  • <p>The question is that the motion to suspend standing orders be agreed to.</p>
  • The majority voted against a [motion]( to ignore the usual procedural rules - known as [standing orders]( - and let a vote happen. This means the vote on Australia's tax policy cannot proceed.
  • ### Motion text
  • > *That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent me moving a motion to provide for the consideration of a matter, namely a motion to provide that a motion relating to tax policy in Australia may be moved immediately and determined without amendment or debate.*
