National Year of Action on Marriage Equality
Mr President, on the point of order: we have a longstanding practice in this chamber that notices of motion are not to be debated. We allow a very brief debate because people want to make a statement but we have restricted it to one per party. That is only fair. That is the way it has always been. To have two speakers from the one party on the same motion is not fair.
