Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER —Order! Before I read the result of the division, I would like to make a brief comment on the behaviour of members as I asked the attendants to lock the doors. I was appalled at the disgraceful behaviour of members from both sides of this House and I intend to have a discussion with the Speaker. I think it is not right that we compromise the attendants, who are doing a job. I had to ask three times for the attendant to lock the door. I think it is totally unruly of those members who used their position as members of the House of Representatives to compromise the attendant at the far door. The result of the division is ayes 72, noes, 55. The question is therefore resolved in the affirmative.

Original question put:

That the amendments (Mr Crean's) be agreed to.
