Mr FITZGIBBON (3:19 PM) —Mr Speaker, I have a question to you. The subject again is the so-called rogue camera incident which occurred during the visit by the President of the United States. Have you seen claims made by a Fox News representative that `a deal was cut to allow the pool camera into the public gallery'? Was this deal identified in the report of the Serjeant-at-Arms—a report you have refused to table? If not, will you make inquiries with the Prime Minister's office in order to determine whether he or any member of his staff was a party to such a deal?

The SPEAKER —Let me indicate to the member for Hunter that everything that happens in this chamber at any time is my responsibility, and absolutely no concessions were given to anybody on the occasion of the tour by the President of the United States or the tour by the President of China. Furthermore, I would refer the member for Hunter to Hansard pages 28144 and 28145 of 11 May this year, and he will find the matter comprehensively covered.
