Business – Rearrangement – Wednesday, 17 June 2020

Mr ALBANESE (GrayndlerLeader of the Opposition) (10:00): I seek leave of the House to move the following motion:

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the government business notice No. 2 standing in the name of the Member for Bradfield being called on immediately.

Leave not granted.

Mr ALBANESE  : I move:

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the government business notice No. 2 standing in the name of the Member for Bradfield being called on immediately.

This is a matter of priority because right now, as a result of regulation changes that have been moved by this government without any consultation with the community, Australians are not able to get their letter services. Older Australians deserve to be able to receive letters more than twice a week—

The SPEAKER: The Leader of the Opposition will resume his seat. The minister.

Mr TEHAN (WannonMinister for Education) (10:01): I move:

That the Member be no longer heard.

The SPEAKER: The question is that the Leader of the Opposition be no longer heard.

The House divided. [10:05]

(The Speaker—Hon. Tony Smith)
