Madam Speaker, I would have appreciated it if you had asked the hooligans across the floor to pipe down while I was speaking, but you did not.

That said, and we have it on the tape, members are taking a good 45 seconds to rise. In future, I would request that you not give them a signal to stand but let them act on their own, as happened this time.
