Before you took the chair, there was a question about people moving within the chamber while the doors were locked. We have now had a situation where the government members realised they were voting the way they did not intend and, after the doors were locked, every member of parliament changed their position. What is the ruling on the disorderly nature of people moving within the chamber after the doors are locked, given that government members have been given an opportunity to correct their mistake when every one of them was going to vote for the House to adjourn immediately?
