MADAM SPEAKER: On the point of order, Mr Coe.

Mr Coe: Firstly, the Gambling and Racing Commission is under the minister's control, and they are the regulator in this space; in addition to which the minister mentioned the relationship, and indeed she mentioned a study that had taken place which assessed the relationship. Therefore I think it is quite reasonable, as a supplementary to her answer, that she expand upon what she had given in the earlier question.

Mr Corbell: Well—

MADAM SPEAKER: On the point of order, I am sorry, Mr Corbell; we could go on and on. I have listened very carefully to the questions and I think they are within the bounds of the minister's responsibility in relation to gaming. Minister Burch.

MADAM SPEAKER: Before you do, Minister Burch, I think there have been three times in the last sitting period that I have drawn to your attention that when there is a point of order, you have to sit down. I directly relate it to you. I should not have to persist in doing this.

MS BURCH: I am sorry, Madam Speaker. Oftentimes, if there is an interjection coming—

MADAM SPEAKER: No, I am talking to you.
