Speaker, this is a suspension of standing orders. The member must address why—

The SPEAKER: Leader of the House will resume his seat—and the individuals around will desist from assisting the chair! The Leader of the House.

The member must address why standing orders should be suspended and not address the substance of the motion.

Mrs Bronwyn Bishop interjecting

I ask that that be withdrawn by the member for Mackellar.
