BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE
Suspension of Standing and Sessional Orders: Routine of Business
Mr BRAD HAZZARD
(Wakehurst—Minister for Planning and Infrastructure, and Minister Assisting the Premier on Infrastructure NSW) [10.04 a.m.]: I move:
That standing and sessional orders be suspended at this sitting to provide for the following routine of business from 12.15 p.m.:
(1) at 12.15 p.m., Government Business;
(2) at 1.00 p.m., Orders of the Day (Committee Reports);
(3) Private Members' Statements until 2.00 p.m.;
(4) at 2.15 p.m., the Speaker resumes the Chair;
(5) Ministerial Statements;
(6) Notices of Motions;
(7) Question Time;
(8) Ministerial Statements;
(10) tabling of Committee Reports and notification of inquiries;
(12) introduction and the agreement in principle speech on the Public Sector Employment and Management Amendment (Ethics and Public Service Commissioner) Bill;
(13) Notices of Motions (General Notices);
(14) Private Members' Statements; and
(15) the House to adjourn at 4.30 p.m. or at the conclusion of Private Members' Statements, if concluded before 4.30 p.m., without motion moved.
I advise members of a slight change in the order of business for today that I have discussed with the Opposition, as I often do to ensure that there is full understanding on both sides about the conduct of business in this Chamber. Today the Premier will deliver an agreement in principle speech relating to the Public Sector Employment and Management Amendment (Ethics and Public Service Commissioner) Bill 2011. In the normal course of events that would take place during Government Business between 12.15 p.m. and 1.00 p.m. However, because of other commitments of the Premier that is not possible today. That agreement in principle speech will be given by the Premier this afternoon immediately after Question Time and before the giving of Private Members Statements.
Question—That the motion be agreed to—put and resolved in the affirmative.
Motion agreed to.
