My second question is to the Deputy Prime Minister. I refer to the tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars given to billionaire Clive Palmer's company to subsidise his luxury private jet. What are the Deputy Prime Minister and the his Queensland mates getting in return? Why hasn't the Deputy Prime Minister asked for taxpayers' dollars back?

That question is out of order. Questions cannot impugn the motives of members in any way, shape or form.

For those on my left not approving of the ruling, I refer them to occasions in the past when the boot has been on the other foot and they've been very supportive of the ruling. The member for Robertson.
