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.
