Education Legislation Amendment (Startup Year and Other Measures) Bill 2023; In Committee
So there are two instances of 'may' in the document—we need to be absolutely clear. This is for the benefit of Hansard, Senator Pocock: I note that in your amendment on sheet 2017 you are seeking to delete 'may', which appears twice, and insert 'must'. I am going to proceed with the amendment to the amendment—this is for the benefit of the chamber—and then I am going to proceed with the amendment as amended, and, with the will of the chamber, unless anyone calls for a division, the call will hold. I intend to call in the affirmative, I am indicating, unless voices persuade me otherwise. Does anyone have any objection to that course of action on the amendment to the amendment on sheet 2017, standing in the name of Senator David Pocock, to replace the word 'may' with 'must'? I now proceed with the amendment as amended, standing in the name of Senator David Pocock. Nobody has indicated they now wish to proceed to a division.
Question agreed to.
We now come to sheet 1931 revised, standing in the name of the Greens, as moved by Senator Faruqi.
