MR SPEAKER: Order! It being past 5.00 pm, I propose the question:
That the Assembly do now adjourn.
Mr Humphries: I require the question to be put forthwith without debate.
Question resolved in the negative.
MS TUCKER (5.03), in reply: I wish to reply to a couple of issues that were raised by members. Mr Rugendyke spoke about the disadvantaged people. I think it does need to be stressed again that the statistics show that the people who are not necessarily well off are more inclined to be using the poker machines. That is why I think it is a really important social justice issue. I agree with Mr Rugendyke's concerns in that area.
