MS TUCKER (12.05): I seek leave to move as a motion my amendment that has just been discussed.
MR SPEAKER: You will have to amend it, Ms Tucker.
Mr Humphries: I was going to move that we suspend so much of the standing orders as would prevent Ms Tucker from moving that this Assembly ask the Minister for Education and Training to table in the Assembly on the first sitting day of 1997 a thorough assessment of the equity implications of school-based management, including the ability of schools to provide high-standard support to students at risk.
Ms McRae: Mr Speaker, I raise a point of order. Does this not anticipate business that is already on the notice paper and should we not now revert to this issue being dealt with from the notice paper?
MR SPEAKER: She is seeking leave, Ms McRae.
Ms McRae: What is going to happen to the motion on the notice paper? Is she going to seek leave to remove it from the notice paper? I am asking for your advice.
MR SPEAKER: Ms Tucker is seeking leave to move a motion. She is seeking leave because we are aware that there is something on the notice paper - - -
Ms McRae: Not everyone is aware, Mr Speaker.
