Mr PYNE (SturtManager of Opposition Business) (15:02): I seek leave to move a motion. The motion that I am seeking leave to move is that the House considers the statement made this day by the member for Dobell, especially in light of the clear indication of the House given before question time that the House wishes this matter to be debated.

Mr Albanese: What?

Mr PYNE: I seek leave to move a motion that we consider the member for Dobell's statement, especially in light of the fact that the House gave a clear indication that it wished to debate this matter by twice voting not to gag members of the opposition.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Ms AE Burke ): The Manager of Opposition Business has sought leave to move a motion. Is leave granted?

Mr Albanese: I am waiting for him to sit down.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: The Manager of Opposition Business will resume his seat.
