Mr RUDD (12:54 PM) —I second the motion. This debate on Iraq will generate many casualties, the first of which is truth.

Mr ABBOTT (Warringah—Leader of the House) (12.55 p.m.)—I move:

That the Member be not further heard.

A division having been called and the bells being rung—

Mr Snowdon —I rise on a point of order. Could you indicate, Madam Deputy Speaker, why the microphone for the Leader of the Opposition was turned off prior to you calling him to order?

The DEPUTY SPEAKER —My understanding is that it was turned off once the time had expired.

Mr Snowdon —With great respect, Madam Deputy Speaker, it was turned off prior to you addressing him.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER —I will check that out and follow it up.

Question put.
