Mr Cornwell	Ms Follett
Mr De Domenico	Ms McRae
Mr Hird		Mr Moore
Ms Horodny	Mr Osborne
Mr Humphries	Ms Reilly

Mr Stefaniak	Mr Wood

Question so resolved in the affirmative, with the concurrence of an absolute majority.

Mr Moore: I raise a point of order. That motion is inconsistent with standing order 148, which defines what an order of the day is. It states:

An order of the day is a bill or any other matter which the Assembly has ordered to be taken into consideration on a particular day.

I do not believe that this matter has been ordered to be taken into consideration on a particular day. In fact, Mr Speaker, we heard about it only as of today.

MR SPEAKER: While I am considering the point of order, we might allow Ms Follett to present the report of the Scrutiny of Bills Committee.

Debate interrupted.

Report and Statement

MS FOLLETT: As standing orders are suspended, I seek the leave of the Assembly to present a report from the Scrutiny of Bills Committee.

Leave granted.

MS FOLLETT: I present Report No. 13 of 1996 of the Standing Committee on Scrutiny of Bills and Subordinate Legislation. I ask for leave to make a regrettably brief statement on the report.

Leave granted.
