The SPEAKER (15:03): Just before I call the Leader of the House, I did say yesterday that I would check the tape and the Hansardregarding the question of the Leader of the Opposition and his question that was originally out of order. I quote the Hansard. After the Leader of the Opposition had asked his question, I said:

That question is quite out of order and I ask the Leader of the Opposition to withdraw the end of the question.

The Leader of the Opposition then said:

Sorry, did you give me the call?

I then said:

I said to withdraw the end of the question. It was unparliamentary.

The Leader of the Opposition was given the call to so withdraw. He did withdraw, but then he sought to continue. It was at that stage that I asked him to resume his seat because he would have required a second call to actually seek leave. That is a record of what transpired. I call the Leader of the House.
