Mr ALBANESE (GrayndlerLeader of the House and Minister for Infrastructure and Transport) (19:34): I move:

That:

(1) the following arrangements apply for the remainder of this sitting:

(a) any division on a question called for in the House, other than on a motion moved by a Minister, shall stand deferred until the commencement of the next sitting; and

(b) if any member draws the attention of the Speaker to the state of the House, the Speaker shall announce that she will count the House at the commencement of the next sitting, if the Member then so desires; and

(2) any variation to this arrangement to be made only by a motion moved by a Minister.

This motion is to give people the security of being able to catch the planes that they have booked. There will be no more speeches from this side of the chamber, but my understanding is that there are a couple more from the opposition. We want to facilitate that without delaying every member of the House. I thank the House for its support.

Question agreed to.
