Ms GILLARD (LalorPrime Minister) (14:00): I advise that the world's greatest Treasurer will be absent from question time today. The Assistant Treasurer will be answering questions on his behalf.

Opposition members interjecting

The SPEAKER: Order! The House will come to order! Before we commence question time I remind people that over the next few sitting days there are some important votes to take place. I hope that members' behaviour indicates to me that they value those votes and does not lead to me having to take action that might deny them a vote at a certain point in time. It would be helpful if the chamber were conscious of that and that each individual modifies their behaviour.
