In Division-

Mr Armitage - I raise a point of order. The last time that this situation occurred was when the Government was in Opposition. At that time the present Minister for Primary Industry (Mr Nixon) called a quorum and he was named. At that time the person in the Chair gave the numbers. As to how many were in the House- if I recollect correctly- there was a quorum plus one. That result was given to the House before the action was taken. I think that the honourable member for Reid has a right to have the same thing done for him so that we can make sure that no action has occurred which could mean undermining the dignity of this Parliament.
