On the latter point, that's not quite right, okay? The issue at hand—and I do have a problem with this, and I regret it, but I've got to deal with it—is that there have been occasions where the Manager of Opposition Business has argued to me directly that a government member was on the wrong side when I closed the doors. Regretfully, I have to say to him that because of that I researched the matter, and the critical point is not the closing of the doors. It's the appointment of the tellers, which I had done, and the member for Newcastle was on the government side. This is something that she has to deal with. I will hear from the Manager of Opposition Business.
