Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 5 Hansard (2 May) . . Page.. 1822..

MR SPEAKER: Yes, Mr Hargreaves. Then we are going to move on.

Mr Hargreaves: The rules are quite clear about this. You cannot say that a member has misled without a substantive motion.

MR SPEAKER: I do not believe that Mr Coe said "mislead". I do not know what he said but I am pretty sure he did not use "mislead".

Mr Hargreaves: Three times.

Mr Coe: I did not, John.

MR SPEAKER: Order, members! One moment, Mrs Dunne, please.

Members interjecting—

MR SPEAKER: Members, stop! Enough! I will check the Hansard tapes. I do not think that Mr Coe used the words, but I will check the tapes and if he did I will come back to the chamber and ask him to withdraw it. And if he did not, I am not coming back to the chamber; I am just going to go on with it. Chief Minister, you have the floor.

MS GALLAGHER: In all of those issues that Mr Hanson just raised, whilst I would very much prefer that they had not occurred, they are not linked to each other. There is no evidence of systemic failure. In fact, the only reading I have had of systemic failure really was reading the McLeod audit. The one thing you do manage, Mr Seselja—

Mr Seselja interjecting—

MR SPEAKER: Mr Seselja, you are now warned for interjecting.

MS GALLAGHER: Three years. Mr Seselja has three years of failure in that regard.

Mr Smyth: Point of order, Mr Speaker.

MR SPEAKER: One moment, Chief Minister.

Mr Smyth: You warned the Chief Minister to be relevant to the questions. She continues to ignore you. You either have to warn her or sit her down.

MR SPEAKER: Thank you for your advice, Mr Smyth. I was very specific about the interjections. Mr Seselja has directly interjected and I have asked for it to stop. Mr Seselja is on a warning.

Mr Seselja: On the point of order, Mr Speaker, Mr Hargreaves has been hurling abuse all question time. He has asked people to go outside. He has hurled abuse. He has hurled abuse at Mr Coe. And you have not once called him to order or warned him. I would just draw that to your attention.
