Mr ALBANESE (Grayndler —Minister for Infrastructure and Transport) [3:20 PM] —I seek leave—

Mr Hawke interjecting

The SPEAKER —Order! The member for Mitchell! Perhaps I picked the wrong mentor for the member for Herbert. The Leader of the House has the call.

Mr ALBANESE —I am just waiting for—

Opposition members interjecting—

Mr ALBANESE —When you shut up, I will talk.

The SPEAKER —The Leader of the House is not helping, but it would help if the members on my left sat there silently for the 15 seconds it will take.

Mr ALBANESE —When they stop interjecting, I will talk.

Opposition members interjecting—

The SPEAKER —Order! The Leader of the House has the call!

Mr Anthony Smith —He obviously can’t do two things at once!

The SPEAKER —The member for Casey is warned!

Mr ALBANESE —I move—well, I won’t move it; I don’t care. It is Jane Prentice—I don’t care.

Honourable members interjecting—

The SPEAKER —Order! The House will come to order! I suggest, as painful as it might be for those on my left, that if they sat there silently for 20 seconds they could get on with business, including their matter of public importance.

Mr ALBANESE —by leave—I move:

That, in accordance with the provisions of section 10 of the Archives Act 1983, this House appoints Mrs Prentice as a member of the Advisory Council on Australian Archives for a period of three years.

Question agreed to.
