Telecommunications Legislation Amendment (Competition and Consumer Safeguards) Bill 2010
Consideration in Detail
In accordance with standing order 133(b), I shall now proceed to put the question on the motion moved earlier today by the honourable member for Wentworth on which a division was called but deferred.
That the amendments (Mr Turnbull’s) be agreed to.
I understand a point of order was raised about the timing of the division. It is clear that the practice of the House has been, where a member has been on his or her feet making a speech, that the member has completed their speech and then the division has been called. I would hope that that is the practice that we will continue—
But he does it in a way that I can hear—and, because of the special relationship that he was seeking from me, I listen to him. When he said that nobody knew, I assumed that he meant that nobody had read Practice. But that is okay; I accept that he was talking about something else.
