by leave—I move:

That a motion relating to the routine of business for today and the consideration of disallowance motions may be moved immediately and determined without amendment or debate.

Question agreed to.

I thank the Senate. I move:


(a) business of the Senate notices of motion nos 1 and 2 proposing the disallowance of the Basin Plan Amendment Instrument 2017 (No. 1), standing in the name of Senator Hanson-Young, for today, be called on, if not already reached, immediately after Senator Molan's first speech and have precedence over all other business until determined;

(b) if consideration of the motions is not concluded at 7.10 pm, the questions on the unresolved motions shall then be put; and

(c) business of the Senate notice of motion no. 3 proposing the disallowance of the Basin Plan Amendment (SDL Adjustments) Instrument 2017, standing in the name of Senator Hanson-Young for today, be postponed till 8 May 2018.

Mr President, I'd just like to request that sections (a) and (b) be voted on separately to (c).

That will be done. You'd like (c) separate to (a) and (b); is that correct? I will put the motion moved by the minister, paragraphs (a) and (b).

Question agreed to.

I will now put paragraph (c) of that motion.

Question agreed to.
