Ms HALL (ShortlandGovernment Whip) (16:05): The time for this debate has well and truly expired. Unfortunately, I would like to move that debate on this matter be suspended and that we now move to what we should be debating, and that is infrastructure and transport. The time has expired as set in the standing orders, and as such we cannot continue to debate it.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Ms AE Burke ): In relation to the member for Shortland's motion, the fact is that these times are not set out in the standing orders. They are by agreement. I understand the member for Calare was also seeking the call. It will be up to the minister whether the minister responds to that call, but I give the call to the member for Calare.

Ms Hall: Further to that, I am happy for the member opposite to make his contribution, but after that I think we really do need to move on to the next report as the minister will be leaving this chamber—

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: I thank the member for Shortland. I have outlined my intentions to give the member for Calare the call and then it will be for the minister if he wishes to respond.
