Question so resolved in the affirmative.

Motion, as amended, agreed to.

Organ and tissue donation

MR HARGREAVES (Brindabella) (3.34): I move:

That notice No 2, Private Members' business, relating to organ and tissue donation, be postponed until a later hour this day.

MR HANSON (Molonglo) (3.34): I would just ask for an explanation. The Canberra Liberals have not been consulted about this issue. Could the member advise what the rationale is for postponing this to a later hour this day?

MR HARGREAVES (Brindabella) (3.35): The reason is that I will hopefully be in a position to actually pursue the motion. I am just a couple of moments away from that. I had made an assumption that the debate that we have just had would go longer than it did. I thought it would be a little bit more minutiae and I have a couple of other people I wish to speak to before actually pursuing the motion. I am not asking for it to be deferred to another day. I am merely asking for another hour this day. It can come on after the next motion.

Mrs Dunne: But did you tell anyone so that people were here for the next item—

MR HARGREAVES: Madam Assistant Speaker, for the benefit of those opposite, I have just got to the position where I am not—

Mr Stanhope interjecting—

MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER (Ms Le Couteur): Mr Stanhope, please be quiet. Mr Hargreaves has the floor.

MR HARGREAVES: Madam Assistant Speaker, I am merely asking for the agreement of the chamber to put the matter off for one motion, but there is no mechanism for doing that. I need to say "another hour this day"and it would mean seeking the indulgence of those opposite to do it in an hour instead of right this moment.
