Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 03 Hansard (Wednesday, 17 March 2010) . . Page.. 963 ..


Mr Rattenbury: You guys should really ask some long, hard questions. Four of you can bang on about whatever you like for 45 minutes, and you wouldn’t let Amanda have a go for another couple of minutes. You’ve got to ask some questions of yourselves.

Mr Seselja: Why didn’t she take her 15?

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Members!

Mr Seselja: You don’t just get to come back because you don’t like what was said in the debate.

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Mr Seselja!

Mr Rattenbury: Because it makes such a difference. You guys are wasting time. I can just stand up here and use Amanda’s notes, but you want to toss on for 10 minutes about the procedures.

Mr Seselja: We can go back. We could all seek leave for extra.

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Mr Seselja and Mr Rattenbury!

Mr Rattenbury: You guys are a joke.

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: While the bells are being rung—

Mr Seselja: You can ask John. We didn’t do that. You guys are the ones who suspended—

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Mr Seselja!

Mr Hargreaves: Warn them!

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: While the bells are being rung you will remain silent, please. The time for the debate is over. You have had the debate.

Mr Seselja: Mr Rattenbury is the one who was stirring it up, so perhaps—

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: I did speak to Mr Rattenbury as well. The trouble is that you were too busy shouting over me. So will you be quiet.

Mr Hanson: He was the one interjecting, Madam Deputy Speaker, but you don’t have a go at him.

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Mr Hanson! Remain silent.

Mr Hanson: You can say what you want. You won’t get chipped—

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Mr Hanson, do you want me to warn you?
