Mr ALBANESE (Minister for Infrastructure and Transport) (4:34 PM) —I move:

That the amendments be considered immediately.

The SPEAKER —Order! As the House awaits the four minutes to transpire, during the last division there were some members that were well and truly listening to the one of the House’s great raconteur’s stories—the member for Hinkler—but they had their backs to the tellers, and they should not do that. But I understand that it was a special occasion for the House’s great raconteur because it is his birthday today. I am pleased that the members of the House were able to gather here on the member for Hinkler’s birthday.

Honourable members—Hear, hear!

Mr Bruce Scott interjecting

The SPEAKER —The member for Maranoa will desist from encouraging him to give us the frog joke.

Question put:

That the motion (Mr Albanese’s) be agreed to.
