FAIRER PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE INCENTIVES BILL 2012 AND RELATED BILLS—CONSIDERATION—PROPOSED SUSPENSION OF STANDING ORDERS

Leave refused: Senator Fierravanti-Wells sought leave to move a motion relating to the consideration of the Fairer Private Health Insurance Incentives Bill 2012 and related bills.

An objection was raised and leave was not granted.

Senator Fierravanti-Wells, at the request of the Leader of the Opposition in the Senate (Senator Abetz) and pursuant to contingent notice, moved—That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent Senator Abetz moving a motion to provide for the consideration of a matter, namely a motion to give precedence to a motion relating to the consideration of the Fairer Private Health Insurance Incentives Bill 2012 and related bills.
