The PRESIDENT - Yes, because, on the motion of the Minister of Defence, the Standing Orders were suspended yesterday, in order to enable the Bill to pass through its remaining stages without delay.

Senator Millen - Does the suspension of the Standing Orders on one day, sir, apply indefinitely for the rest of the session?

The PRESIDENT - If the Standing Orders are suspended to enable a Bill to pass through its remaining stages without delay, necessarily they are suspended until it has passed its final stage.
