Question: Speakers Process of Resignation

Mr GARDNER ( Morialta ) ( 15:12 ): Sir, my question is to you in your capacity as the Speaker. Given the responsibility that you have to advise the Governor to issue a writ for a by-election if a member resigns, what is the process if you yourself were to resign from this place?

The SPEAKER ( 15:12 ): I'm loving it.

Mr GARDNER: Point of order, sir: under standing order 98, I propose that you are debating the answer and not providing information to the house.

The SPEAKER: I express my intention that I intend to stay until the general election or beyond.
