IMMIGRATION—REFUGEES AND ASYLUM SEEKERS—PROPOSED SUSPENSION OF STANDING ORDERS

Leave refused: Senator Hanson-Young sought leave to move a motion relating to the vilification of refugees and asylum seekers.

An objection was raised and leave was not granted.

Senator Hanson-Young, at the request of the Leader of the Australian Greens (Senator Milne) and pursuant to contingent notice, moved—That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent Senator Milne moving a motion to provide for the consideration of a matter, namely a motion to give precedence to a motion relating to the vilification of refugees and asylum seekers.
