I think this part of the day is a bad time to get thrown out, Member for Fenner. As I've said before in these circumstances House of Representatives Practice outlines the principles that have been used in the exercise of the casting vote, one of which is that a casting vote on an amendment should leave a bill in its existing form. This principle has seen the casting vote used against amendments, therefore I cast my vote with the noes.
