Leave refused: The Leader of the Government in the Senate (Senator Abetz) sought leave to move a motion to vary the hours of meeting and routine of business for today.

An objection was raised and leave was not granted.


Proposed suspension of standing orders: Senator Abetz, pursuant to contingent notice, moved—That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent him moving a motion to provide for the consideration of a matter, namely a motion to give precedence to a motion to vary the hours of meeting and routine of business for today.
