Just to clarify, I understand you have taken advice and obviously the opposition will support the ruling that's based on the clerk's advice. As I understand it, the fact that this has not been voted on means we now return to the red unamended—the government will have to consider how it wishes to deal with that—which means we'd move to senators' statements now, unless the chamber gives Senator Birmingham leave for the division to occur. I would infer from the previous contributions that that is unlikely to occur.
