On the same issue, Mr Speaker, when you're taking that into account, I ask that you also reflect on the principle of something being raised at the time. I respect what the Manager of Opposition Business has just referenced in Practice. But that, of course, is usually utilised when something is said where the member who might feel aggrieved was not in the room. We're talking about something where all 151 of us were here—except for whoever was sick, but basically every member of parliament was here. Secondly, I ask that you take into account where lines have previously been drawn. Tough things are said in this chamber.
