Once it's seconded then it will be before the House. At the moment it's been moved, and you've called for a seconder. The motion is what the Leader of the Opposition moved. He stood up and moved:

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the House immediately debating the state of the Australian economy, with the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition speaking for a period of up to 10 minutes each and four other Members speaking for a period of up to 5 minutes each.

That's what he moved, and if it's seconded it will then be a motion before the House.
