STANDING ORDERS

Sessional

Hon CHRIS HIPKINS (Leader of the House): Following discussions at the Business Committee and across the House, I seek leave to table a Government notice of motion setting out a sessional order with special procedures for the House during an epidemic and for it to be set down as Government notice of motion No. 1 on tomorrow’s Order Paper, notwithstanding Standing Orders 97 through to 99. By way of explanation, this will allow members to scrutinise the notice of motion before it is put as Government order of the day No. 1 tomorrow.

SPEAKER: Is there any objection to that process being followed? There appears to be none.
