Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 11 Hansard (Thursday, 21 October 2010) . . Page.. 4928 ..


Mr Seselja: They both did it; they both called her—

MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER: That may be true, but I did not hear it, Mr Seselja. Mrs Dunne, you have the floor and I suggest that you continue.

Mr Rattenbury: Point of order, Madam Assistant Speaker, Mr Seselja just reflected on your ruling.

Mr Seselja: Sorry, how?

Mr Rattenbury: Mr Seselja quietly made the observation that you were hearing nothing and seeing nothing. He was implying a bias in your ruling, Madam Assistant Speaker.

Mr Seselja: Are you in the Speaker’s chair now, Shane? It is not really clear to me. It seems like you are sitting in the Speaker’s chair.

Mr Rattenbury: Zed, you are so thin-skinned. You are pathetic.

Mr Seselja: No, we only have to look at you wrong and we get a ruling.

MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER: Mr Seselja, please stop. Mr Seselja, Mr Rattenbury, please stop the cross-talk. Mrs Dunne, you do have the floor. I invite you to continue speaking.

MRS DUNNE: Thank you, Madam Assistant Speaker. In question time today Mr Corbell came the closest we have seen to an analysis of this policy. He admitted that the feed-in tariff and its expansion, which will deliver us six per cent—not six percentage points; six per cent of the cut that we need—will cost us, every Canberra household, about $50 a year.

So you can do the math. If six per cent is going to deliver us about $50 a year, it is close to $1,000 per household every year to deliver these things. $1,000 is not the sort of change that the average—

Mr Seselja: It is going to be much more than that.

MRS DUNNE: And it is probably going to be much more than that; that is a back-of-the-envelope analysis based on the only analysis that Mr Corbell has put forward in his debate.

Mr Seselja: That is not credible at all. At $400 a tonne? So there you go; it is not the six per cent.

MRS DUNNE: I see.

Mr Seselja: It is much more.
