AUSTRALIAN EDUCATION BILL 2013 AND RELATED BILL—PROPOSED SUSPENSION OF STANDING ORDERS

Leave refused: Senator Mason sought leave to move a motion relating to the Australian Education Bill 2013 and a related bill.

An objection was raised and leave was not granted.

Senator Mason, at the request of the Leader of the Opposition in the Senate (Senator Abetz) and pursuant to contingent notice, moved—That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent Senator Abetz moving a motion to provide for the consideration of a matter, namely a motion to give precedence to a motion relating to the Australian Education Bill 2013 and a related bill.

Debate ensued.

Closure: The Parliamentary Secretary for School Education and Workplace Relations (Senator Collins) moved—That the question be now put.
