The SPEAKER (15:16): Before everyone departs, I want to talk a little about tonight and Thursday night. I ask all members to note that the usual arrangements and, importantly, courtesies will apply to the Treasurer's budget speech this evening and equally to the Leader of the Opposition's speech in reply on Thursday evening. As with all proceedings of the House, the member with the call is entitled to speak without interruption. In accordance with precedent, should I determine that a member be required to leave the House under standing order 94(a), the member will be advised by written note.

I ask members to ensure that their guests arrive at the galleries in good time to undertake the secondary security clearance and to be seated in the galleries prior to 7.10 pm. As previously and, can I say, repeatedly advised, all guests arriving at Parliament House will be required to present photographic identification and have their ticket to enter the galleries. As was the case last year, I trust that there will be cooperation from members and their invited guests in the galleries, for whom they are responsible. It should be the aim of all members that both nights proceed smoothly for the benefit of the House and for those watching and listening to the proceedings. I thank the House.
