Mr Kaine: The adjournment motion is not subject to debate, Mr Speaker.

MR SPEAKER: Order! Mr Berry, you will need leave to debate the question "That the debate be adjourned".

Mr Moore: Mr Speaker, I believe Mr Berry has spoken to the motion. If he wants to speak first, I am quite happy to allow him to speak and then to move the adjournment.

Mr Berry: The amendments have not been passed and that still allows certain things to be sold and so on in the meantime. I would rather see the amendments dealt with; that is all.

Mr Kaine: Since it is going to be adjourned for a month, it does not matter.

Mr Moore: The whole point of the exercise is to allow for the issues that Mr Osborne raised to be taken care of.

Mr Hird: If that is what you want to do, do it.

Mr Berry: I want to get the amendments in and the motion passed.

Mr De Domenico: There is a motion before you, Mr Speaker.

Mr Berry: I seek leave to speak in relation to the amendments, Mr Speaker.

MR SPEAKER: Just a moment. The question is: "That the debate be adjourned". If you want to withdraw that, Mr Moore, you can do so.

Mr Moore: I withdraw it, Mr Speaker.

MR SPEAKER: Now, if you wish to discuss the amendments, Mr Berry, you will need leave because you have already spoken.

Mr Berry: No, not to the amendments, Mr Speaker. I think they have been moved.
