Senator FIELDING (Leader of the Family First Party) (1:39 PM) —by leave—Mr Acting Deputy President, I do not want to take the issue too much further but I certainly heard two noes before and I have just heard a statement by a senator who voted no. I think we should have the vote again if there is another no added to mine.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT —Senator, the issue is the number of voices calling and that is in the hearing of the chair. I deliberately watched you and your colleagues down at that end of the chamber to note the number of voices that called. I heard one and I saw only one mouth move. The ruling stands, thank you, Senator.

Bills read a second time.
