Subjects for debate submitted by branches and the national executive committee. Motions are 'marked' in the Booklet of Motions as follows: motions requiring debate to establish union policy on an issue motions which confirm existing policy (and so do not require debate) motions seeking to reverse existing policy as determined within the last two years (and so which cannot be debated). motions which can be dealt with by correspondence with the general secretary (and are thus not debated - the motion is treated as the initial correspondence with the general secretary to which s/he is subsequently obliged to reply). motions covered by composite motions in category A above (delegates from branches where these motions originated are normally called in the debate on the covering 'A' motion if they indicate they wish to speak). motions which are ruled out of order (a brief reason is indicated against the motion number in the Booklet of Motions). NB In addition, some motions submitted by branches are not printed if the standing orders committee has decided, after taking legal advice, that the wording of the motion could lead to legal proceedings against the union {Rule 6.22(g)}.
a motion is a proposal submitted to the Senate by a senator. If the chair accepts a motion moved by a senator, the chair puts the motion to the Senate in the form of a question. Debate may then ensue if the question is one which, under the rules of the Senate, may be debated. The question is then put again by the chair and voted upon by the Senate. If the Senate agrees to the motion it then becomes a resolution or order of the Senate. (Odgers' Australian Senate Practice, 10th Edition)

Passions include: Love/Hatred, Desire/Aversion, Joy/Sorrow, Hope/Despair, Fear/Courage, Envy/Lust/Anger. Neither good, nor evil in themselves because (in general) they are independent of reason and will, and are the movements of the sense appetites.
