The PRESIDENT (11:39): Just so that senators are absolutely clear, standing order 101(3) says:

When successive divisions are taken, and there is no debate after the first division, the bells for each ensuing division shall—

it does not say 'may'—

be rung for one minute only.

I acceded to a request of the Leader of the Opposition in the Senate for four-minute bells on the last occasion, but I advise senators that for every other occasion where there is no ensuing debate, the bells will be rung for one minute only.

The question now is that this bill proceed without formalities.
