an efficient way of levying taxes! When you break that down to a per day basis, a per business day basis, that individual is paying $8 a day in government rates simply for a car parking space. It is not that much dearer on the street. Where is the incentive for a business to do the right thing by their clients and by the community, and purchase their own car parking space for their clients—

Mr Corbell: Are you saying it does not have a value? Are you saying the car park does not have a value?

MR WALL: Of course it has, and the value is undertaken by the owner. They are paying mortgage fees on it.

Mr Corbell interjecting—

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Mr Corbell, you may speak later.

MR WALL: Mr Corbell is interjecting that the car park does not have value. Of course it has value.

Mr Hanson: Don't mislead us.

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Mr Hanson!

Mr Corbell interjecting—

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Mr Corbell!

Mr Hanson: Madam Deputy Speaker, you just asked Mr Corbell not to interject. He is continuing to interject, but you are calling me out. I would ask that you apply that.

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Mr Hanson, I do not need you to tell me how to manage affairs from the Speaker's chair and I would have you not call across the chamber that Mr Corbell is misleading.

MR WALL: Can we stop the clock, please.

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Stop the clock. I did, in fact, ask Mr Corbell twice not to interject.

Mr Hanson: And he ignored you.

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Do not call across the chamber that someone is misleading. I would like you to withdraw that implication, Mr Hanson. I would like you to withdraw that implication that Mr Corbell is misleading.

Mr Hanson: There was no implication; what I said is, "Don't mislead us."

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: That is an implication for the character of the member. I would like you to withdraw.
