Mr SNOWDON (Lingiari) (15:50): I second the motion. I ask the government: why is it that they show such contempt—

The SPEAKER: The member will resume his seat. The Leader of the House?

Mr Pyne: You have not given him the call, Madam Speaker.

The SPEAKER: I call the member for Lingiari.

Mr SNOWDON: You did call me—

The SPEAKER: I did call him.

Mr SNOWDON: but the microphone was not turned on. Why is it that you show such contempt for the people of north-east Arnhem Land and the community of Gove? Why do you hate them so much? Why won't you let us have a debate?

The SPEAKER: Will the member resume his seat. I call the Leader of the House.
