Senator BERNARDI (South Australia) (15:53): Madam Deputy President, may I request that when you put this motion you put them independently so that the original motion—(a), (b), (c), (d) and (e)—be put as one question and then the amendment by Senator Patrick be put as a separate question?

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: The amendment would be put separately, and I would put the amendment once the debate is finished.

Senator BERNARDI: Perhaps I expressed myself poorly. If the amendment happens to be carried, I wonder whether we can divide the final motion, because I find myself in the same position as the government: I'd like to support the original motion, if the amendment is not successful.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: The question is that the amendment to general business notice of motion No. 661, as moved by Senator Patrick, be agreed to.

Senator Gallagher did not vote, to compensate for the vacancy caused by the resignation of Senator Parry.

Senator Dastyari did not vote, to compensate for the vacancy caused by the resignation of Senator Nash

Senator O'Sullivan did not vote, to compensate for the vacancy caused by the resignation of Senator Kakoschke-Moore.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: There was a request earlier to split 661, so the question now is that paragraphs (a) to (d) of general business notice of motion No. 661 be agreed to.

Question agreed to.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: The question is that paragraph (e) of general business notice of motion No. 661 be agreed to.

Question agreed to.
