Mr Osborne: I do not care, Mr Speaker. All we want is fairness on the crossbenches.

MR SPEAKER: Withdraw that.

Mr Osborne: No; we just want to be treated fairly.

MR SPEAKER: I name you, Mr Osborne.

Mr Moore: On a point of order, Mr Speaker: Standing order 165 provides that in case of error the Assembly votes again. The Clerk, in reading out the names, called the name of Ms Follett. Perhaps we should call the count again.
