5       Hours of Meeting and Routine of Business—Proposed Variation

Leave refused : Senator Leyonhjelm sought leave to move a motion to vary the order of the Senate of 15 March 2016 relating to the hours of meeting and routine of business for this week ( see entry no. 6, 15 March 2016 ).

An objection was raised and leave was not granted.

Proposed suspension of standing orders : Senator Leyonhjelm, 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 to vary the order of the Senate of 15 March 2016 relating to the hours of meeting and routine of business for this week.

Debate ensued.

Closure : The Attorney-General (Senator Brandis) moved—That the question be now put.
