What are Government Motions?

A Government Motion is a formal proposal by a Minister/Member of Government that the Legislative Assembly take certain action. Examples of Government Motions includes annual Strategic Policy Statements, the calling of Referenda and the formal recognition of Tax Information Exchange Agreements with other jurisdictions. These can bring new business before the Legislative Assembly or consist of numerous other proposals to take procedural steps or carry out other actions relating either to a pending motion or the body itself.

A Government Motion does not require a seconder.
