The question is that Liberal Democrat Party amendment (1), on sheet 8321 revised, be agreed to.

A division having been called and the bells being rung—

The CHAIR: Senator Bernardi, on a point of order?

I do note that the person who called the division is no longer present in the chamber, and I wonder whether the division stands, or the request for it, given those circumstances?

The CHAIR: Senator Bernardi, I'm informed that Senator Leyonhjelm called for the division.

I was in the chair, Madam Chair, and the voices I heard did not include Senator Leyonhjelm's.

The CHAIR: I remind senators that when divisions are called for, the people who call divisions need to remain in the chamber. Thank you, Senator Bernardi.

The committee divided. [11:02]
