  • <p>Mr President, on the point of order, I refer you to standing order 195. It says that a senator may require the question to be read by the Clerk at any time during a debate. You have ruled that that does not apply if the question has been circulated.</p>
  • <p class="speaker">John Hogg</p>
  • <p>That is a ruling by a former President of the Senate, Senator Calvert, so I am relying on that.</p>
  • <p class="speaker">Bob Brown</p>
  • <p>I would ask you to come back to the Senate with that ruling and an assurance that this has been applied consistently throughout your period as President.</p>
  • <p class="speaker">John Hogg</p>
  • <p>It is a ruling by former President Calvert and, as far as I can reasonably recall, I have consistently applied that ruling. If I am in error on that, I stand to be corrected. The question is that the bills be read a second time.</p>
