Mr BURKE (WatsonManager of Opposition Business) (10:01): (In Division) Can you just advise the House on the status of the Serjeant-at-Arms' chair—

The SPEAKER: The definition within standing orders is:

area of Members’ seats means the area of seats on the floor of the Chamber reserved for Members. It does not include seats in the advisers’ box or special galleries, but does include the seat where the Serjeant-at-Arms usually sits. The expression is used in standing orders 128 and 129 (divisions).

The SPEAKER: The question now before the House is that the motion to suspend standing orders be agreed to.
