Motion determined as not formal : Senator Ludlam, also on behalf of Senator Xenophon, requested that general business notice of motion no. 976 standing in their names for today, relating to a Permanent Court of Arbitration case between Timor-Leste and Australia, be taken as formal.

An objection was raised and the motion was not proceeded with as a formal motion.

Proposed suspension of standing orders : Senator Ludlam, at the request of the Leader of the Australian Greens (Senator Di Natale) and pursuant to contingent notice, moved—That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent Senator Di Natale moving a motion relating to the conduct of the business of the Senate, namely a motion to give precedence to general business notice of motion no. 976.
