SUSPENSION OF STANDING ORDER 76 - NEW BUSINESS

MR HUMPHRIES (Attorney-General) (10.55): Mr Speaker, I move:

That standing order 76 be suspended for the remainder of this sitting.

Mr Berry: What is that?

MR HUMPHRIES: This is the standing order that prevents the introduction of new business after 11 o'clock at night. I am advised that, although we are having a cognate debate, the second of these two Bills will constitute new business, and therefore this procedural motion needs to be moved.

Question resolved in the affirmative, with the concurrence of an absolute majority.
