Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2007 Week 8 Hansard (30 August) . . Page.. 2398..
Question so resolved in the affirmative.
Original question resolved in the affirmative.
Mr Pratt: Mr Speaker, can I seek your advice on a particular matter. In the previous matter, when you gave me the nod to stand and speak, and before I opened my mouth, Ms MacDonald was able to "take a point of order". How could she have done that if I had not opened my mouth and spoken? Could you please advise me where that sits in the standing orders?
MR SPEAKER: Ms MacDonald moved the closure motion, pursuant to standing order 61.
Mr Pratt: But, Mr Speaker, I recall—
MR SPEAKER: Standing order 61 states:
61. A Member may not interrupt another Member whilst speaking, unless:
(a) to call attention to a point of order;
(b) to call attention to the want of a quorum; or
(c) to move a closure motion.
It is consistent with standing order 61.
