NUCLEAR WEAPONS TESTING--URANIUM

Motion determined as not formal: Senator Coulter, at the request of the

Leader of the Australian Democrats (Senator Kernot), asked that General

Business notice of motion no. 1644 standing in the name of Senator

Kernot for this day, relating to nuclear weapons testing and uranium, be

taken as formal.

An objection was raised and the motion was not proceeded with as a

formal motion.

Proposed suspension of standing orders: Senator Coulter, at the request

of Senator Kernot and pursuant to contingent notice, moved--That so much

of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent Senator Kernot

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. 1644 standing in the name of Senator Kernot, relating to nuclear

weapons testing and uranium.
