INDEPENDENT INQUIRY INTO SPORTS GRANTS--PROPOSED SELECT
COMMITTEE--PROPOSED SUSPENSION OF STANDING ORDERS

The Leader of the Opposition in the Senate (Senator Hill), pursuant to

contingent notice, moved--That so much of the standing orders be

suspended as would prevent Senator Hill 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. 629 standing in his

name for this day, relating to the establishment of a Select Committee

for an Independent Inquiry into Sports Grants.

Debate ensued.
