Mr Moore: On a point of order, Mr Speaker: I think it is entirely inappropriate for Mr De Domenico to indicate how you should act.
MR DE DOMENICO: Do it, Greg.
MR SPEAKER: Mr Moore, I warn you under standing order 202.
Mr Osborne: On a point of order, Mr Speaker: Why would you warn Mr Moore? All we want on the crossbenches is as fair a go as the Government.
MR SPEAKER: For persistently and wilfully obstructing the business of the Assembly.
Mr Osborne: Yes, but you have not given us a fair go today. That is why we are interrupting.
MR SPEAKER: You are going to be next.
Mr Osborne: I do not care. We have not had a fair go today.
MR SPEAKER: As you will.
MR DE DOMENICO: Thank you for your protection, Mr Speaker. Mr Speaker, under standing order 46 I wish to make a personal explanation because during question time this afternoon Mr Osborne suggested that he was not given a list - - -
Mr Osborne: On a point of order, Mr Speaker: Now Mr De Domenico is saying I am a liar.
MR SPEAKER: Sit down, Mr Osborne. He has not made any such allegation.
Mr Osborne: He said that I said something and it is not true. That is what he was about to say.
MR SPEAKER: Would you mind resuming your seat.
Mr Osborne: He is debating the matter, Mr Speaker. Pull him into line like you pull us into line.
MR SPEAKER: He is not debating the matter.
Mr Osborne: Pull him into line like you pull us into line. That is only fair.
MR SPEAKER: Sit down or I will - - -
Mr Osborne: No; you pull them into line as much as you pull us into line. That is fair.
MR SPEAKER: Mr Osborne, you are also warned.
