Question so resolved in the affirmative.
Debate adjourned to the next sitting.
MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for the Environment, Climate Change and Water, Minister for Energy and Minister for Police and Emergency Services), by leave: Today, we have seen the Liquor Bill adjourned because of a last-minute ultimatum by the Greens requiring the government to deliver over half a million dollars of additional funding—
Mr Seselja: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker.
MR CORBELL: I have leave, Mr Seselja.
Mr Seselja: Well, I am raising a point of order. The point of order goes to the reflection on a vote. I just ask you to rule on that.
MR CORBELL: I am not reflecting on the vote, Madam Deputy Speaker; I am explaining why the vote has occurred, and I have leave to do so. Yesterday Mr Rattenbury approached me and told me that the Greens would not support debate on these important community safety reforms unless the government was prepared to commit to a financial commitment to improve public transport services late at night in the city area.
