Customs Amendment (Growing Australian Export Opportunities Across the Asia-Pacific) Bill 2019, Customs Tariff Amendment (Growing Australian Export Opportunities Across the Asia-Pacific) Bill 2019; In Committee
My point of order is that standing order 196 on tedious repetition says:
The President or the Chairman of Committees may call the attention of the Senate or the committee, as the case may be, to continued irrelevance or tedious repetition, and may direct a senator to discontinue a speech, but that senator may require that the question whether the senator be further heard be put, and then that question shall be put without debate.
I've been following this debate quite closely and Senator Steele-John hasn't come within a bull's roar of what's on the floor of the Senate in terms of tariff reductions.
The TEMPORARY CHAIR: There's no record point of order. Please continue, Senator Steele-John.
