Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 8 Hansard (8 August) . . Page.. 2590..

MR QUINLAN (continuing):

this place and the way Mr Humphries seems to be quite happy to misrepresent what people have said.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Personal explanation

MR HUMPHRIES (Chief Minister, Minister for Community Affairs and Treasurer): Under standing order 46, I would like to respond to the comments of Mr Quinlan.

MR TEMPORARY DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Hird): Please proceed.

MR HUMPHRIES: Mr Quinlan made reference a little while ago to inaccurate views. He referred to what I had said about his comments in question time today. I do not think that he used the word "fantasy", but the phrase he used that led me to believe he used that word was very similar: the ACT budget surplus was "sprinkled with stardust". I am sorry that that transmogrified into "fantasy", but I think that is near enough.

Mr Quinlan: Does that count as an apology?

MR HUMPHRIES: I apologise for not using the exact words, but the intent was there. "Sprinkled with stardust" is pretty close, and I think I got it more or less right saying what I said about it at question time.
