Mr PYNE (SturtLeader of the House and Minister for Defence Industry) (15:18): by leave—I move:

That:

(1) standing order 31 (automatic adjournment of the House) and standing order 33 (limit on business) be suspended for the sitting on Tuesday, 8 May; and

(2) standing order 31 (automatic adjournment of the House) be suspended for the sitting on Thursday, 10 May 2018 and at that sitting, after the Leader of the Opposition completes his reply to the Budget speech, the House automatically stand adjourned until 10 am on Monday, 21 May 2018, unless the Speaker or, in the event of the Speaker being unavailable, the Deputy Speaker, fixes an alternative day or hour of meeting.

This is to ensure that the Leader of the Opposition can speak on Thursday night outside the normal time limits and that the House will adjourn afterwards.

Question agreed to.
