Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 8 Hansard (16 August) . . Page.. 3265..
Mrs Dunne: Mr Assistant Speaker, can I draw your attention to what I consider to be your inappropriate comments?
MR ASSISTANT SPEAKER: Yes, you can.
Mrs Dunne: You said that you did not believe Mr Smyth and therefore accused him of being a liar. You should not do it and you should withdraw.
MR ASSISTANT SPEAKER: Mrs Dunne, I thank you for your contribution, as always. Mr Smyth, you have the floor.
Mrs Dunne: I am sorry, Mr Speaker—
MR ASSISTANT SPEAKER: What else would you like, Mrs Dunne?
Mrs Dunne: I think that you are in the same position as any other member of this place. If you use unparliamentary words, you should withdraw.
MR ASSISTANT SPEAKER: Mrs Dunne, I will ask the Speaker to review the Hansard. I do not believe that I have used any unparliamentary phrase at all. If you have got so upset, you can approach the Speaker yourself. I will do so anyway. Mr Smyth.
Mr Doszpot interjecting—
MR ASSISTANT SPEAKER: Mr Doszpot, do not force me into a place I do not want to go. Mr Smyth, you have the floor.
MR SMYTH: Mr Assistant Speaker, I was just going to make the comment that it is timely that we do get the quarterly reports. In fact, we get two quarterly reports from the operation of the Gene Technology Regulator. As Mr Barr so eloquently pointed out, it is a legislated for and licensed and governed operation in the ACT. To the great shame of those that would destroy crops, perhaps they should read the report about the safeguards that are in place.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
