Having come from a Parliament where a person is given only one minute speaking time, I am conscious that many Members in this House would have already this morning used up their entire allocation of speaking time for the year.
I support Senator Landy’s comments in regard to repetition. Perhaps in calling for Ministers to come to this House to explain themselves, we should by way of reform commence with ensuring we do not have repetition in this regard. While it is important people are allowed to make their points, we should perhaps review procedures at an early date to ensure we use our time effectively. I ask that the procedures be reviewed at an early date.
