SPEAKER'S RULING

Honourable senators, I was going to take this under advisement, but I am now ready to rule. The standard rule in proceedings in this chamber is that you need unanimous consent for certain matters. I made the mistake of not hearing Senator Duffy. I do not think there was ever any question that Senator Duffy said “no.” The thing is that I was unable to hear him, so I made the mistake of proceeding.

So I would ask the leave of the chamber to reverse the decision to have dealt with this matter, so it goes back on the Order Paper.

With leave of the Senate, decisions taken earlier today in relation to the thirteenth report of the Standing Committee on Internal Economy, Budgets and Administration and the amendment relating thereto, were rescinded.
