MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: I remind members that it is customary to keep quiet when the Clerk is conducting the count.
Mrs Dunne: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker, during the division, a member on the other side—I am not quite sure who—when asked for their vote said, "That'll be no." I draw to your attention that the forms of the house require a yes or no and no other comment.
MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Thank you, Mrs Dunne. That is why I made my comment. I think the member was actually commenting on Dr Bourke's loud "No", saying, "That would be a no," and then she gave her answer of no after that, but I am not sure what that—

Mr Hanson: My apologies.
MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: That is why I—
MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Members, if you could let me finish it will be a lot quicker, and we can get to the adjournment debate. That was the reason I made the comment, because there was a lot of toing and froing going across the chamber as we were trying to hear the replies. That made it very difficult, so I ask members, again, to just give their reply of yes or no and not to enter into any kind of commentary because it makes it very difficult for the Clerk to hear, and certainly for me. Mr Hanson, did you have something else?
