BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE
Suspension of Standing and Sessional Orders: Bills
Mr BRAD HAZZARD
(Wakehurst—Minister for Planning and Infrastructure, and Minister Assisting the Premier on Infrastructure NSW) [11.32 a.m.]: I move:
Question—That the motion be agreed to—put and resolved in the affirmative.
Motion agreed to.
That standing and sessional orders be suspended to permit the passage through all remaining stages at this sitting of the Work Health and Safety Bill 2011 and the Occupational Health and Safety Amendment Bill 2011.
Earlier today I mentioned that, as manager of business of the House, I would move a motion to bring on the Work Health and Safety Bill and Occupational Health and Safety Amendment Bill. I gave notice of this motion this morning and I discussed it with the Opposition leader of business last night and this morning. The Opposition understands the need to move this legislation.
