Mr PYNE (3:32 PM) —Mr Speaker, in congratulating you on your election can I let you know that you will have no trouble with me in terms of the matters of the House.

The SPEAKER —You now have my attention. I am worried too.

Mr PYNE —Mr Speaker, given the concerns that have been raised about whether parliamentary privilege attaches to Friday sittings, inter alia because of the suspension of quorum requirements, will you obtain and release the legal advice referred to by the Leader of the House in the debate on Tuesday? If not, will you obtain your own legal advice and report back to the House?

The SPEAKER —Because I think that the member for Sturt is seeking a considered response, I will take advice from the Clerk and, without stating the extent to which I will be able to answer all the items in his question, I will provide him with information.
