The member for McMahon will just pause for a second. I've made this point previously about motions. I have been looking at the clock. A motion—the majority of it—needs to contain a concise proposition the House can determine. The member for McMahon, I can see, has one page—I hope it's only one.

No, I'm just going to make my point. It's been a while since we sat, and he's in company with a number of others. If this persists, I'll need to take action to return to the practice of many decades ago. The member for McMahon needs to come to what the proposition is, not debate in the way that he would at other times during the day.
