On behalf of the Leader of the House, I move:
That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the following from occurring in order to further facilitate the work of the Federation Chamber in considering the appropriation bills:
(1) on Tuesday, 15 June the Federation Chamber to meet for government business from 4 pm to 7.30 pm, and there to be no constituency statements or grievance debate;
(2) on Wednesday, 16 June the Federation Chamber to meet at 10 am and consider the following business:
(a) Members' three minute constituency statements until 10.30 am;
(b) government business from 10.30 am to 1 pm;
(c) government business from 4 pm to 5 pm;
(d) Members' three minute constituency statements from 5 pm to 6 pm;
(e) grievance debate from 6 pm to 7 pm; and
(f) adjournment debate from 7 pm to 7.30pm;
(3) on Thursday, 17 June the Federation Chamber to meet for government business from 10 am to 1 pm, adjourn without debate, and there to be no constituency statements; and
(4) any variation to this arrangement to be made only by a motion moved by a Minister.
Question agreed to.
