Ali Sabry

Justice Minister Ali Sabry has observed that since the Speaker had already given a ruling the matter could only be reviewed only at a meeting of party leaers or by moving a substantive motion.

He was speaking in Parliament on the issue of refusal of Ponnambalam’s request to pose a question. Ali Sabri said:

“Standing Order 76.1 has clearly provided for an occasion like this. It says the Speaker in Parliament and the Chair in any committee shall be responsible for the observance of the rules of order in Parliament and Committee respectively.

Their decision upon any point of order shall not be open to appeal and shall not be reviewed by Parliament except upon a substantive motion made after notice.

You as the Speaker have given a ruling. They could bring in a substantive motion to put the matter before the House. Otherwise, you review it at the party leaders’ meeting.”
