Standing Orders

The PRESIDENT (14:16): Can I ask that the Labor members remove their badges as they are in breach of standing orders, otherwise you will not get the call.

The Hon. R.P. WORTLEY (14:16): Point of order: members on this side of the chamber are wearing this in support of our friends up there, the working people in the disability sector, and we should show them some sort of respect.

The PRESIDENT: I appreciate that. You will have ample opportunity to debate during the course of the chamber. The ruling on the standing orders has been consistently upheld by a series of Presidents who happen to be members of the Labor Party.
