Business of the Senate

March 3, 2022

The Hon. the Speaker [ - ]

Honourable senators, before calling for the resumption of the bells, I call upon Senator Plett.

Hon. Donald Neil Plett (Leader of the Opposition)

Honourable senators, we did call for an adjournment earlier. There was clearly some scrambling going on all morning. It hadn’t been finished when Senator Gold presented his motion.

I saw there was only one avenue open for us at that time, and that was to call for a bell so that we could continue talking about the things we had been talking about. That happened very quickly after we suspended.

Your honour, if it’s all right with the chamber, if the chamber would give me leave, I would withdraw the motion to adjourn and would be happy to continue debate and, hopefully, be able to hear from Senator Gold.
