In division—


Mrs Crosio —Mr Speaker, I raise a point of order. For clarity, are we voting on the honourable member's amendment—has she moved it?—or the bill?


The SPEAKER —No.


Mrs Crosio —We are voting on the bill?


The SPEAKER —Let me indicate to the member for Prospect that the question that we last voted on was to put the question. The question is that the bill be agreed to, so we are currently voting on: `That the bill be agreed to'.


Mrs Crosio —Thank you.


Mr Andren —Mr Speaker, I raise a point of order. Some more clarity, Mr Speaker: could you explain why there was no calling for a seconder on that?


The SPEAKER —Yes. The member for Calare may have noticed that at the conclusion of the member for Riverina's remarks the Leader of the House rose and asked that the question be put, and the amendment had no life of its own; it had not been stated from the chair.
