Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 5 Hansard (9 May) . . Page.. 1451..

MR SMYTH (continuing):

One restaurant I will mention in closing is Washoku in Tuggeranong, the winner of the Japanese restaurant award. If you like tempura prawns, that is the place to go. For Japanese food, that is my favourite restaurant.

Chief Minister

MS DUNDAS (4.46): Today, in question time, the Chief Minister took a lot of time to inform us how busy he is and what a full schedule he has. I would not deny that, as Chief Minister, he does have a busy time. He then listed his responsibilities as Chief Minister, Attorney-General and Minister for Health. I point out that he again forgot that he is also Minister for Women-and I find this disappointing.

I am also disappointed that, as Minister for Women, he used the term "dollying" when referring to the Leader of the Opposition. My dictionary has two definitions of "dollying". One refers to mining, which I am sure is not the way in which Mr Stanhope was using it. But the other one is a colloquial verb relating to a dolly bird, which is a not-nice term around women. I am disappointed that, as Minister for Women, he would use such a term in this chamber.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

The Assembly adjourned at 4.47 pm until Tuesday, 14 May 2002, at 10.30 am.
