Mr DANBY (3:16 PM) —Mr Speaker, I refer to question time last Thursday when, under standing order 94(a), you removed seven members of the opposition at the rate of one every six minutes. Can you advise the House whether or not this has established an Australian or, indeed, a world record?

The SPEAKER —I would say to the member for Melbourne Ports the last part of that question was quite frivolous. In response to the first part, I think any comparison of current arrangements with earlier arrangements is difficult to make because standing order 94(a) is a fairly recent development in this chamber. Therefore, to try and make any meaningful comparison I think would be very difficult.
