Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 8 Hansard (15 August) . . Page.. 2972 ..
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary, Mr Hanson. Before you continue, though, I would expect that if you are asking the question, the Chief Minister will be able to answer in some level of quiet, which has not been the case during his answering of the last two questions.
MR HANSON: Could everybody be quiet, please? I've been warned. Everybody needs to be quiet. It seems to come down to me.
MADAM SPEAKER: You will be named now. Mr Hanson—
MR HANSON: Well, you have directed it to me, Madam Speaker, and said that the chamber needs to stay quiet.
MADAM SPEAKER: No, you are talking back to the chair. You are showing disrespect for the chair. You are a serial offender. I have put you on notice that you were warned. You are now named. I move:
That Mr Hanson be suspended from the service of the Assembly.
Ayes 12: Mr Barr Ms Berry Ms J Burch Ms Cheyne Ms Fitzharris Mr Gentleman Ms Le Couteur Ms Orr Mr Ramsay Mr Rattenbury Mr Steel Ms Stephen-Smith
Noes 9: Miss C Burch Mr Coe Mrs Dunne Mr Hanson Mrs Kikkert Ms Lawder Ms Lee Mr Milligan Mr Parton
Question resolved in the affirmative.
[Mr Hanson was suspended at 3.32 pm for three sitting hours in accordance with standing order 204, and he withdrew from the chamber].
Mrs Dunne: A supplementary question, Madam Speaker.
Mr Barr: Haven't you already given the call?
MADAM SPEAKER: I would advise everybody that we are on nearly the final question and there has been a level of interjection and disregard from members of the opposition, and my tolerance level has just about expired.
Mr Coe: A point of order.
MADAM SPEAKER: Yes.
