Sittings of the House

Hon TREVOR MALLARD (Labour—Hutt South) : I raise a point of order, Mr Speaker. I just want to check through you with the Leader of the House whether he is proposing to take leave soon for the House to rise at 5 p.m. I do not think he has yet taken leave to give effect to that Business Committee decision.

Hon GERRY BROWNLEE (Leader of the House) : I had thought that was a Business Committee determination—it was agreed by the Business Committee. But, as determined by the Business Committee, I seek leave that the House rise at 5 p.m. today for the autumn adjournment.

Mr SPEAKER: Leave is sought for that purpose. Is there any objection? There is no objection.
