2    Defence—Deployment of Australian Troops in Iraq—Proposed Suspension of Standing Orders

Leave refused : The Leader of the Australian Greens (Senator Milne) sought leave to move a motion relating to parliamentary approval for the deployment of Australian troops in Iraq.

An objection was raised and leave was not granted.

Senator Milne, pursuant to contingent notice, moved—That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent her moving a motion to provide for the consideration of a matter, namely a motion to give precedence to a motion relating to parliamentary approval for the deployment of Australian troops in Iraq.
