Bills: Water Legislation Amendment (Inspector-General of Water Compliance and Other Measures) Bill 2021; Consideration of House of Representatives Message (24 Jun 2021)

“I do. The terms of this motion are very clear. The question should be put immediately; it does not say the words 'without debate'. So you put the question, then the Senate can debate it. That is the only reasonable way to interpret this motion, and the reason that the government has not put those words in is because they did it in such an unholy rush that they have stuffed it up.”

Motions: Immigration Detention (23 Jun 2021)

“Before moving general business notice of motion No. 1168, I inform the Senate that Senators Keneally and McCarthy will also sponsor the motion. I, and also on behalf of Senators Thorpe, Keneally and McCarthy, move: That the Senate agrees that the Murugappan family should be allowed to return to their home in Biloela.”

Business: Consideration of Legislation (23 Jun 2021)

“I move: That if by 12 August 2021 the government business order of the day relating to the consideration of the National Consumer Credit Protection Amendment (Supporting Economic Recovery) Bill 2020 has not been finally considered, the order of the day be discharged from the Notice Paper.”
