2     Order of Business—Rearrangement

Leave refused : The Assistant Minister for Social Services (Senator Fifield) sought leave to move a motion relating to the order of government business for today.

An objection was raised and leave was not granted.

Suspension of standing orders : Senator Fifield, at the request of the Leader of the Government in the Senate (Senator Abetz) and pursuant to contingent notice, moved—That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent a minister moving a motion to provide for the consideration of a matter, namely a motion to give precedence to a motion to vary the order of government business for today.
