MR SPEAKER: The Assembly stands adjourned until the ringing of the bells. I want to see the whips, the Leader of the Opposition and the Deputy Chief Minister in my office.

At 8.05 pm, the sitting was suspended until the ringing of the bells.

The bells having been rung, Mr Speaker resumed the chair at 8.30 pm.

Mr Stanhope: On a point of order, Mr Speaker: I have been granted a pair, which I have no intention of dishonouring, like others in this place. I just want to draw attention to the fact that at this stage I am paired.

MR SPEAKER: Order! That is not a point of order. I have some other matters to deal with. I intend to recommit the vote, because of some confusion, that Mr Pratt be suspended from the service of the Assembly. Those in favour say aye, against say no. The ayes have it, I think. Is a division called for? Lock the doors. All members are present.

DR FOSKEY: Are there any pairs in operation?

MR SPEAKER: There are no pairs in operation. All members are present.

The Assembly voted—
