Reports of the President to the Standing Orders Committee

On 9 March 1904 a document entitled Remarks and Suggestions on the Standing Orders1 was tabled by the President, in which he submitted for the consideration of the Senate:

That at the commencement of each session the President should lay a paper on the Table formulating and tabulating all the decisions arrived at during the last session, giving reasons (if it should be necessary to do so) why, in his opinion, any of his own decisions were incorrect, or any of the decisions of the Senate, would lead to inconvenient results.

The document was referred to the Standing Orders Committee which agreed to the President’s suggestions in its first report of 1904,2 adopted by the Senate on 18 May 1904. Subsequent reports were compiled until 1921.
