That the Assembly do now adjourn.

Williamsdale Quarry

MR BERRY (4.58): Mr Speaker, during question time Mr Humphries made a point about some legal advice I had received in relation to the Williamsdale quarry. It pointed to the legality of the disposal of significant assets at the quarry. Mr Humphries tried to create the impression that there was something wrong with the advice I had given to lawyers in relation to the matter so they could draw their conclusions about the legality or otherwise of the joint venture arrangements the government claims were some sort of achievement. They accrued a joint venture, they claim, rather than disposed of part of an asset.

Mr Humphries drew attention to the information I might have given to the lawyers in this matter and claimed that that might have been inadequate. That is interesting, because the information I gave to the lawyers was Mr Humphries' speech. That may well have been inadequate, but I cannot take responsibility for that. That is Mr Humphries' problem.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Assembly adjourned at 4.59 pm
