The SPEAKER (3:36 PM) —As I recall the instance, it was a case—and I will stand corrected if I am wrong—of the Treasurer addressing questions to government members which were invoking a response, and it was in that context that I used the remark. If I am in error, I will come back to the member for Wills. I do, however, recognise the comments made by Speaker Halverson and I would uphold them. I thought the way in which I was involved in this was a case of the Treasurer asking questions of the government side of the House rather than questions directed to the opposition or the Leader of the Opposition, but I will check the transcript and come back to the member for Wills.
