Senator BIRMINGHAM (South AustraliaMinister for Education and Training and Manager of Government Business in the Senate) (12:24): Just to respond very quickly, the effect of the motion that I read is very clearly to ensure that the order of business, when the Senate reaches non-controversial legislation at 12.45 pm today, would be the order as listed in the amendment circulated in the name of Senator Wong. That would deal with, as is proposed, all of the bills on the order of business with the exception of the Aged Care (Single Quality Framework) Reform Bill and it would give priority to the veteran-centric reforms bill. The standard part (b) of the motion that is usually moved is there, that government business be called upon should all of the non-controversial bills be dealt with. Of course, consistent with practice, it would be open to any senator to ask that the two parts be voted upon separately.
