Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 8 Hansard (9 August) . . Page.. 2689..
Mr Humphries: What did you say, then?
Mr Stanhope: I might be able to clarify that, Mr Speaker. It is coming back to me slowly but surely. I think, in fact, Mr Quinlan was talking to me. I have some recollection now that he was talking about the esteem in which the Chief Minister was held within the community; he was talking about the esteem in which the community holds the Chief Minister. I said, "Surely not." He actually referred, I think, to the Chief Minister's rugged good looks.
Mr Moore: "Condescending, bloody woman" is what he said, and you should be condemning him.
Mr Stanhope: No, he did not.
Mr Moore: You should be condemning him for saying it. You are the spokesman for women's affairs.
Mr Stanhope: I think that it was reported that he said, "Bloody fool," but I have the recollection now that he might have said, "The ruddy jaw."
Mr Rugendyke: Mr Speaker, surely there is a standing order to which I can relate a point that suggests that we get on with what is on the daily program. This is childish and nonsense.
MR SPEAKER: Mr Rugendyke, I do wish that the people of the ACT could see some of these games that are played in this place.
MR SMYTH (Minister for Urban Services, Minister for Business, Tourism and the Arts and Minister for Police and Emergency Services): For the information of members, I present the following papers:

I ask for leave to make two statements.
