Question resolved in the affirmative.

Motion (by Mr Corbell ) put:

That the resumption of the debate be made an order of the day for a later hour this day.

A call of the Assembly having commenced—

MR DEPUTY SPEAKER: Just to clarify the matter, there were two motions. The first one was that the debate be adjourned. That was called and resolved. There was another question put, that the resumption of the debate be made an order of the day for a later hour this day, and that is where we are at.

Mrs Dunne: Mr Deputy Speaker, in accordance with the standing orders, could I ask that the vote, that the debate be adjourned, be recommitted.

Mr Corbell: You can only do that with an absolute majority.

MR DEPUTY SPEAKER: Order! I have just taken some advice, and standing order 165 says:

In case of confusion or error concerning the numbers reported, unless the same can be otherwise corrected, the Assembly shall proceed to another vote.

On the basis of that standing order, I am going to go back and call the first vote again and we will take it from there. I put the question:

That the debate be adjourned.
