Mr McMULLAN —Mr Speaker, I have a question to you, but I am afraid it is not as dramatic as the last one. I ask you to confirm whether Limro Cleaning Services, which is contracted by the Joint House Department to provide cleaning services to the parliament, has implemented a blanket policy not to authorise any leave without pay for any employee? Do you regard this as a reasonable policy for that company to adopt in relation to the people who clean this building; if not, will you review the contract with Limro with a view to terminating it as soon as possible?

Mr SPEAKER —I thank the member for Canberra for his question. I will take it on notice. I am unaware of the detail. I will check, examine and respond.
