Question resolved in the negative.

Mr Steel: On a point of order, Madam Speaker: earlier, in question time, Mr Hanson interjected across the chamber, claiming that Mr Gentleman was misleading the Assembly. Now that the Assembly has dealt with the motion moved by Mr Hanson, he should withdraw his unparliamentary remarks, together with the three other mentions of the word “misleading” in question time, the three more mentions of “misleading” in his speech just now, and also the word “dishonest”.

Mr Hanson: Madam Speaker, the form is that if you believe someone is misleading, you can say that, but you have to then move a substantive motion. I have just done that, in accordance with your guidance, so I have complied with what you asked me to do. The fact that I lost the motion does not mean that I do not believe it. I have complied by moving a substantive motion.

MADAM SPEAKER: You still, in your speech, used the word “dishonest”. I ask you to withdraw any unparliamentary language in relation to Mr Gentleman, please.

Mr Hanson: If I am being asked to withdraw “dishonest”, I am happy to do so, but not “mislead” because that was part of the substantive motion. It is appropriate for me to say “mislead”. If I did use the word “dishonest”, I am happy to withdraw, Madam Speaker.

MADAM SPEAKER: Thank you, Mr Hanson.


Motion (by Mr Gentleman) proposed:

That the Assembly do now adjourn.


MR STEEL (Murrumbidgee—Minister for Skills, Minister for Transport and City Services and Special Minister of State) (5.34): I would like to make my end of year remarks, and start by thanking the people of Murrumbidgee. It has been an honour once again to represent them for another year in the Assembly. I have enjoyed engaging with them about the issues that matter to the south side, and delivering what we promised at the election—to bring light rail to Woden, starting with the raising of
