Questions without notice
MR HUMPHRIES: Mr Speaker, I wish to correct a matter which I mentioned in answer to a question from Mr Stanhope today in question time. I referred to the fact that Mr Tonkin had written to the Auditor-General clarifying or correcting the earlier impression he had created about the so-called inquiry or review done by Mr Gilmour. I am advised that that was not the case, that he had not written subsequently to advise of the error, although the matter has been well ventilated in the public arena. That is basically because the inquiry by the Auditor-General has been concluded. I wanted to correct that on the record, lest I be accused of misleading.
