The Leader of the Nationals will resume his seat. I thank him for the question. The reason that those divisions are otiose is that the time allotted for the suspension of standing orders, being the 25 minutes, has well and truly expired, whereas this motion was—regrettably for me—based on a motion dissenting from a ruling from the chair, which does not have such a time limitation.

Question put:

That the member be no longer heard.
