CONSTITUTION ALTERATION (LOCAL GOVERNMENT) 2013—CONSIDERATION—PROPOSED SUSPENSION OF STANDING ORDERS

Leave refused: The Leader of the Opposition in the Senate (Senator Abetz) sought leave to move a motion relating to the consideration of the Constitution Alteration (Local Government) 2013.

An objection was raised and leave was not granted.

Senator Abetz, pursuant to contingent notice, moved—That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent him moving a motion to provide for the consideration of a matter, namely a motion to give precedence to a motion relating to the consideration of the Constitution Alteration (Local Government) 2013.

Debate ensued.
