Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 1 Hansard (15 February) . . Page.. 175..


MR HANSON: Minister, does your office telephone number divert to a mobile phone number?

DR BOURKE: Could I have the question again, please, Mr Hanson?

Mr Hanson: I am asking whether the office phone number that you have as a point of contact diverts to a mobile phone or whether it goes to message bank, to clarify the point there. Does it divert to a mobile phone?

DR BOURKE: I thank the member for his question. I have not exactly investigated the options for telephone routing in my office. I do know that we have cards on which we have our mobile numbers and our office numbers.

Australia Day—protest

MR HANSON: My question is to the minister for Indigenous affairs. Yesterday you refused to answer a number of questions about your office's involvement in the protest at the Lobby Restaurant on Australia Day, and in fact continually referred to a scripted statement relating to events surrounding Australia Day. Yesterday you said that your office had received a telephone call from the Prime Minister's office. Minister, did the Prime Minister's office contact your office landline or a staff member's mobile phone?

DR BOURKE: I thank the member for his question. I presume it was a mobile.

MR SPEAKER: Mr Hanson, a supplementary.

MR HANSON: Did the Prime Minister's office contact your media adviser as listed on the press releases?

DR BOURKE: I thank the member for his question but I am not going to work through the members of my office in a game of 20 questions to work out where you want to go. I am not going to divulge names of people in my office.

MRS DUNNE: Supplementary question, Mr Speaker.

MR SPEAKER: Yes, Mrs Dunne.

MRS DUNNE: Minister, did you personally speak with your staff member before the Prime Minister's office was referred to Ms Sattler?

DR BOURKE: I refer to my answer yesterday: no.

MRS DUNNE: Supplementary question, Mr Speaker.

MR SPEAKER: Yes, Mrs Dunne.

MRS DUNNE: Minister, did the Prime Minister's office contact your senior adviser responsible for Indigenous affairs?
