Senator COLSTON —I give notice of 10 contingent notices of motion in terms which I now hand to the Clerk.

The notices read as follows—

(contingent on the Senate on any day concluding its consideration of any item of business and prior to the Senate proceeding to the consideration of another item of business)

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the senator moving a motion relating to the conduct of the business of the Senate or to provide for the consideration of any other matter.

(contingent on the Senate proceeding to the consideration of government documents)

That so much of the standing orders relating to the consideration of government documents be suspended as would prevent the senator moving a motion relating to the order in which the documents are called on by the President.

(contingent on a minister moving a motion that a bill be considered an urgent bill)

That so much of standing order 142 be suspended as would prevent debate taking place on the motion.

(contingent on a minister moving a motion to specify time to be allotted to the consideration of a bill, or any stage of a bill)

That so much of standing order 142 be suspended as would prevent the motion being debated without limitation of time and each senator speaking for the time allotted by standing orders.

(contingent on the chair declaring that the time allotted for the consideration of a bill, or any stage of a bill, has expired)

That so much of standing order 142 be suspended as would prevent further consideration of the bill, or the stage of the bill, without limitation of time or for a specified time.

(contingent on the chair declaring that the time allotted for the consideration of a bill, or any stage of a bill, has expired)

That so much of standing order 142 be suspended as would prevent the questions being put in respect of any amendments circulated by the Opposition, the Australian Democrats or any Independent Senator, and that such questions be put accordingly.

(contingent on the moving of a motion to debate a matter of urgency under standing order 75)

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the senator moving an amendment to the motion.

(contingent on the President proceeding to the placing of business on any day)

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the senator moving a motion relating to the order of business on the Notice Paper .

(contingent on any senator being refused leave to make a statement to the Senate)

(contingent on a minister at question time on any day asking that further questions be placed on notice)

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the senator moving a motion that, at question time on any day, questions may be put to ministers until 28 questions, including supplementary questions, have been asked and answered.
