Senator GIVENS (Queensland) .- I move -

That the amendment be agreed to.

The proposed standing order is in accordance with the practice of the Senate and the practice of all Parliaments under the British flag. It only means that an honorable senator must vote, and that his vote may be recorded in the way it is given when the motion is finally put from the Chair.

Senator Millen - Is there not a provision for that already?

Senator GIVENS - No; not in that way. We have no standing order in regard to this practice. It is also laid down in May and Todd. We thought that in order to make the matter absolutely clear, it was desirable to have a standing order. There is a simple rule in the other House.
