The Assembly voted -
AYES, 9 NOES, 8 Mr Berry Ms Carnell Mr Corbell Mr Cornwell Mr Hargreaves Mr Hird Mr Kaine Mr Humphries Mr Moore Mr Osborne Mr Quinlan Mr Rugendyke Mr Stanhope Mr Smyth Ms Tucker Mr Stefaniak Mr Wood
Question so resolved in the affirmative.
Mr Rugendyke: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I would like to clarify whether Mr Kaine intended to vote the way he did, or whether he was mistaken and may be able to rethink his vote.
Mr Kaine: I am not in a position to answer that, Mr Rugendyke.
MR SPEAKER: It is a matter you will have to take up with the individual member. I cannot do anything.
Mr Kaine: Mr Speaker, I think I should clarify the record. I did vote incorrectly. I intended to vote no and I voted yes in error. I do not know what procedure has to be followed to correct my vote.
MR SPEAKER: The Clerk is looking at the matter. Standing order 165 states:
In case of confusion or error concerning the numbers reported, unless the same can be otherwise corrected, the Assembly shall proceed to another vote.
Is it the wish of the house to have another vote? There being no objection, that course will be followed.
That the amendment (Mr Hargreaves' ) be agreed to.
