I thank the honourable member for his question. We all remember his rolled-gold guarantee about his dual citizen MPs and how they were able to sit in the parliament. It took two High Court decisions for the Labor Party to finally recognise that they were ineligible to sit here. The Leader of the Opposition referred to the member for Dickson. The member for Dickson has advised me that he has legal advice that he is not in breach of section 44, and I therefore have no reason to believe that he is.
