Mr ALBANESE (GrayndlerLeader of the House, Minister for Infrastructure and Transport and Minister for Regional Development and Local Government) (09:27): I am always happy to assist Madam Speaker, and I withdraw.

The SPEAKER: I thank the member. I would point out that the time for the debate had not expired.

Mr Albanese: Your time had expired!

The SPEAKER: I had placed the question. If anyone was paying attention, I had put the question that the Leader of the House was referring to, so I can now actually put the question to a vote, if you would like.

Mr Briggs interjecting

The SPEAKER: Order! The member for Mayo can't learn, can he? No. I was going to indicate that the cross-chamber chat is inappropriate.

Mr Dutton interjecting

The SPEAKER: Order, the member for Dickson! Having just spoken fairly bluntly to the member for Mayo, I thought perhaps I might have got a little bit of respect for the chair. The member for Dickson has a valid point, but he is not assisting and I just point that out.

The question before the chair is that the motion moved by the Manager of Opposition Business be agreed to.
