Mr SPEAKER -Order! I do not intend to call the next Minister until there is sufficient quietness in the House. I do not intend to keep requesting quietness after question time. In future I shall just wait until it occurs and, if necessary, take disciplinary action. The level of noise is not fair to honourable members who are interested in the business before the House; it is not fair to the Ministers; and I do not think it is fair to the listening public either. I have repeatedly requested honourable members to keep the level of their conversation down after question time. If honourable members do not comply with my request, I shall just delay the business of the House until such time as honourable members co-operate.
