Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! The Leader of the Australian Country Party's time has expired. I call the Minister for Immigration.

Mr Katter - Could I take a point of order now, Mr Deputy Speaker?

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Not on anything that occurred previously.

Mr Katter - It occurred only 10 seconds ago.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - That does not matter. The honourable member rose to take a point of order and then chose not to take it.

Mr Katter - A hypocrite called the Leader of the Australian Country Party a hypocrite.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! The honourable member will withdraw that remark.

Mr Katter - I withdraw the remark.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -If the honourable member had wished to take a point of order on a matter such as that he should have taken it at the time and not risen subsequently and made allegations. Any honourable member is entitled to draw the Chair's attention to a matter which he considers to be out of order and ask the Chair to act in relation to it. My attention was not drawn at the time to the matter about which the honourable member subsequently took a point of order. It is not possible to take action subsequently.

Mr McLeay - Did you hear what was said, Mr Deputy Speaker?

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - No, I did not.
