On skateboards, I commend to the Assembly the conclusions of the Standing Committee on Social Policy. That has already been discussed. I would like to echo Mr Jensen's words about Gus Petersilka. He is a marvellous asset to our city and I am very sorry indeed that there are divisions between Gus and Mr Connolly. I regret that.

Mr Connolly: No, no, between Gus and everybody else in Garema Place; that is the division. I will do whatever they all want.

DR KINLOCH: Sure; I regret those divisions. Perhaps Mr Connolly could act as an honest broker between them. I do not know what to suggest, but I do hope that Gus will not come out of this soured by it. I hope that some kind of rapport can develop between Gus and the rest of them.

Finally, I would like to commend his Viennese restaurant - here comes the commercial - the new one. It is absolutely marvellous. Not only does he serve his usual food and drink but also there are art works, eighteenth and nineteenth century music and, amazingly, a whole collection of old magazines. I do not mean 10 years old; I mean 50, 60, 70 years old, and they are all in these special plastic cases.

Mr Kaine: They have been sitting in doctors' waiting rooms.

DR KINLOCH: Yes; he may have been around doctors' waiting rooms picking them up. They are from all over the world. They are European, British, et cetera. I do not know whether there are any in Japanese or Chinese. I do commend this new restaurant, his new venture, to the Assembly. Perhaps we could have a gathering there at some point before Christmas.

MR SPEAKER: The discussion is now concluded.


Inquiry into Auditor-General's Report No. 4 of 1991

MR KAINE (Leader of the Opposition) (4.13): It has taken us so long to get to it, Mr Speaker, that I had forgotten that I was supposed to do this today. Mr Speaker, I seek leave to make a statement regarding the Standing Committee on Public Accounts inquiry into the Auditor-General's report No. 4 of 1991 relating to managing capital works, and also to table a copy of submissions from the Department of Urban Services and a copy of a letter from the Auditor-General on that subject.

Leave granted.
