On behalf of the Leader of the House, I move:

That so much of the standing and sessional orders be suspended as would prevent the following:

(1) a Minister moving a motion without notice;

(2) debate on the motion being limited to 1 hour;

(3) speaking times being 10 minutes for the mover and 5 minutes for all other members speaking;

(4) amendments to the motion not being permitted; and

(5) any variation to the arrangement being made only on a motion moved by a Minister.

Question agreed to.
