Mr ALBANESE (3:35 PM) —I have a question to you, Mr Speaker. It concerns the use of standing order 94(a) to exclude the member for Lilley today from the House without warning, for an hour.


The SPEAKER —I would remind the Manager of Opposition Business that the member for Lilley was warned.


Mr ALBANESE —Mr Speaker, could you examine the tape and argue whether the member for Lilley was the most disorderly person in the House during question time?


The SPEAKER —The Manager of Opposition Business is now reflecting on the chair.


Mr ALBANESE —No, I am not.


The SPEAKER —The Manager of Opposition Business already has the answer to his question. The member for Lilley was warned. He continued to interject, and he was accordingly asked to leave under standing order 94(a).


Mr ALBANESE —Could you examine the tape and see whether the behaviour of any government members was disorderly during question time and during the suspension debate before the parliament today?


The SPEAKER —I say to the Manager of Opposition Business, yes, I do examine the tape after occasions like today, but I will not be revisiting any decisions.
