by leave—I move:
That for the sitting tomorrow, Wednesday, 3 June 2009:
- standing order 31 (Automatic adjournment of the House) and standing order 33 (Limit on business) be suspended, and
- from 7.30 p.m. any division on a question called for in the House, other than a motion moved by a Minister, shall stand deferred until the next sitting.
I will speak to the motion briefly. For the benefit of members, the intention is that after the MPI debate there will be the summing up by the minister on the workplace relations legislation that is before the House. That will then be voted on by the House. We will then resume debate on the health insurance legislation. That will be voted on by the House. Then debate will begin on the CPRS legislation. The CPRS legislation debate will recommence tomorrow morning. It is my view, as Leader of the House, and I understand it is the view of the Manager of Opposition Business, that it would be in the interests of the House if people restricted their comments to less than the allocated 20 minutes so that we could maximise the number of speakers on the legislation.
