I genuinely do not believe that I'm out of order and in contravention of the standing orders. Madam Acting Deputy Speaker, could I ask you, please, to perhaps take the matter on notice and come back to me. If it is the view of the President, on advice from the clerks, that in fact I'm out of order I certainly will withdraw that. But my understanding very clearly from the standing orders and numerous previous rulings given by the President is that, if you do not identify somebody specifically, then you are not in contravention of the standing orders.
