I seek leave to move a motion to exempt these bills from the bills cut-off order.

Leave not granted.

I move:

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the consideration and passage of these bills during this period of sittings.

I table a statement of reasons justifying the need for these bills to be considered during these sittings.
