MR SPEAKER: I will ask the leader of the house to repeat it.
Mr Berry: I move to suspend so much of standing orders as would prevent me from dissenting from your decision.
MR SPEAKER: You cannot do so. It is not possible. I call the leader of the house.
Mr Humphries: Mr Speaker, I moved: That Mr Corbell be suspended from the service of the Assembly.
The Assembly voted -
AYES, 9 NOES, 8 Ms Carnell Mr Berry Mr Cornwell Mr Corbell Mr Hird Mr Hargreaves Mr Humphries Mr Kaine Mr Moore Mr Quinlan Mr Osborne Mr Stanhope Mr Rugendyke Ms Tucker Mr Smyth Mr Wood Mr StefaniakQuestion so resolved in the affirmative.
MR SPEAKER: Mr Corbell, you are suspended from the service of the Assembly for three sitting hours.
Mr Corbell accordingly withdrew from the chamber.
MS TUCKER: My question is to Mr Stefaniak, and I think that he has had some notice of it. Care Action, St John's Church, Reid, the Red Cross, the Hare Krishnas, the Freemasons and the Civic Youth Centre provide meals to the homeless and hungry on a rotational basis every night of the week. They currently do so at the Civic Youth Centre, which is a resource specifically for those under 25 years of age. I think that you are aware that the Civic Youth Centre no longer will be able to provide meals to those over 25 years of age; so, my question is: What provisions are in place to provide a new venue to the other organisations to feed those people?
