Treasury Laws Amendment (Working Holiday Maker Reform) Bill 2016; Third Reading
I seek leave of the House to move the third reading immediately
Leave not granted.
That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the motion for the third reading being moved without delay.
A division having been called and the bells being rung—
Mr Speaker, the Treasurer, in moving this motion, has just sought to suspend standing orders. He was not sought to invoke the contingency motions that are available to him on the Notice Paper.
I rise to speak to the motion. Those opposite are engaging in a ridiculous use of the parliament. Those opposite are shutting down a debate that can be had this week. The Senate will not sit for three weeks.
