Steering Wheel Play

I do need lower control arm bushings, but am pretty sure that this has no effect on what I'm about to say.

I don't know if this is normal or not...?... When my car is stopped withtthe engine off (or on for that matter) and the steering wheel is not locked, there is about (roughly ) 15 degrees of play before any resistance is felt, the same goes for when the car is on, only the power steering being the resistance (hardly).
Is this normal?
