Road Safety Remuneration Repeal Bill 2016, Road Safety Remuneration Amendment (Protecting Owner Drivers) Bill 2016; Third Reading
It is very regular for members to come into the House and wave at the tellers and say: 'I have arrived' or 'I have changed my vote; I am moving to the other side'—usually the crossbenchers in fact from that part of the chamber. So this is a pathetic try-on. Obviously the record should reflect the votes in the House of Representatives, and clearly the members for Kennedy, Denison and Indi indicated that they wanted to vote with the government on this bill. That is how they voted and that is what should be recorded.
