Motion (by Senator Gareth Evans) proposed:

That, unless otherwise ordered, until 2 p.m. this day, matters of public interest may be raised and discussed by senators, provided that no senator shall speak for more than 15 minutes.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT (Senator Haines) —The question is that we move into non-controversial debate. The question is that the motion be agreed to.

Senator Townley-Madam Acting Deputy President, I raise a point of order. This is not a non-controversial debate. It is definitely a matter of public interest.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
