Mr ALBANESE (GrayndlerLeader of the House and Minister for Infrastructure and Transport) (14:59): Given that the government is putting $150 million into the Calliope Crossroads, a photo with me is not the basis of $150 million. If so, I would be very a popular person to sit next to.

Honourable members interjecting

The SPEAKER: Order! The member for Sturt will resume his seat. I did not quite hear the leader—did he grant leave? No? Leave is not granted.

Mr Pyne: Mr Speaker, I have a point of order to you. As the new Speaker, I seek guidance from you as to whether you will be allowing the Leader of the House to simply approach the dispatch box and start bellowing across the chamber at the opposition without properly seeking the call and being given it.

The SPEAKER: I will not tolerate that in future. I think the honourable member who made that point ought to sometimes look in a mirror.
