MR PARTON: Yes. My point is that, as the presiding officer of this chamber, you believe, quite rightly, that it was important for Mr Hanson to deal with those comments at the time that he made them because you asked him to withdraw or to bring forward a substantive motion. And so, our side of the chamber is seeking, as per your wishes, to deal with those statements in the most timely manner possible which would be to debate the matter now.

MADAM SPEAKER: Thank you for your assistance, Mr Parton!

MR BRADDOCK (Yerrabi) (3.01): I take Mr Parton’s impetus to resolve this in as timely a fashion as possible. I would just ask a question; would the passage of two hours have such a detrimental impact in terms of your argument? Particularly given this will allow the minister to be fully briefed in terms of any particular numbers they may wish to be able to provide in support of their argument.

We will not be supporting the suspension of standing orders at this point in time. We would, as the Chief Minister has outlined, be able to resolve this question after we have finished scheduled private members business, which was already agreed and organised at the administration and procedures committee meeting which the Canberra Liberals were also part of. Once we have finished our scheduled business then we are in a position to be able to resolve this question.

Question resolved in the negative.
