Prohibition on reference to whether an Honourable Member is in the Chamber & Directing a Question Without Notice

The Hon. I. PNEVMATIKOS (15:54): My question is to the minister assisting the Premier, but she doesn’t appear to be in chambers.

The PRESIDENT: The Hon. Ms Pnevmatikos, you can’t, under the standing orders, make reference to whether a member is in the chamber or not in the chamber.

The Hon. I. PNEVMATIKOS: Okay, I will just ask the question.

The PRESIDENT: No, the question needs to be directed to a particular member of the government.

The Hon. I. PNEVMATIKOS: I direct it to the Leader of the Government in this chamber.
