Mr President, on the point of order: the reason that I stood—and I believe that I should have been given the ability to make a short statement—is that the motion was misrepresented by the statements made by Senator Fielding. Unless we are going to enter into a debate around the issue of same-sex marriage and debate my bill which is currently before the parliament, then we should not be having this debate. We should be debating the substance of the motion.
