Senate Temporary Orders
I thank the chamber, and I note the observations made by Senator Lambie and others on the crossbench about the importance of a continuing discussion about the workability of these provisions. I understand that the operation of the current temporary order is under review by the Procedure Committee. One thing the chamber may wish to consider is referring the matters raised by Senator Lambie to that review. There is a review at the moment to look at how well this works. It seems to me this is a matter that might sensibly be considered in that process.
