On the first day of each sitting week the Senate Daily Summary outlines the business scheduled for consideration in the Senate. On subsequent days, it provides a convenient summary of the previous day’s proceedings in the Senate, with links to official Senate records.

Another document useful in tracking the business of the Senate is the Dynamic Red, which records proceedings in the Senate as they happen.

Victorian bushfires

A motion will be moved on 9 February about the bushfires in Victoria, after which the Senate will adjourn as a mark of respect.
