Senator Haines, at the request of the Leader of the Australian Democrats (Senator Chipp) and pursuant to contingent notice, moved--That so much of the Standing Orders be suspended as would prevent Senator Haines moving a motion relating to the order of business on the Notice Paper.

Senator Haines thereupon moved--That, after the consideration of General Business, Notice of Motion No. 54, General Business, Notice of Motion No. 67 relating to Community Youth Support Scheme programmes, take precedence of other business.
