Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 09 Hansard (Tuesday, 23 August 2011) . . Page.. 3644 ..


MRS DUNNE: Minister, when you were the planning minister, did you discuss the call-in of the development, as Mr Savery called for, and is the current calling-in a vindication of Mr Savery’s position?

MR BARR: Yes, I did discuss the call-in with Mr Savery.

MR SPEAKER: Mr Seselja, a supplementary?

MR SESELJA: Thank you. Minister, does the call-in as called for by Mr Savery vindicate Mr Savery’s position that the process had become compromised?

MR BARR: Obviously the process for calling in a development application is outlined in the Planning and Development Act.

MR SPEAKER: A supplementary, Mr Seselja?

MR SESELJA: Thank you. Minister, will you now apologise to Mr Savery for the disgraceful way in which he has been treated?

MR BARR: I have no grounds and no need to apologise to Mr Savery, and there is no need for anyone to apologise to Mr Savery.

Government—initiatives

MS PORTER: Chief Minister—

Members interjecting—

Mr Hargreaves: Point of order, Mr Speaker. I heard Mr Seselja call across the chamber, “Corrupt bullies.” I would like him to withdraw it.

Mr Seselja: No, you did not, and I am not going to withdraw something I didn’t say. How about you stop making stuff up.

MR SPEAKER: Mr Seselja, on the point of order—

Mr Seselja: I did not say it.

MR SPEAKER: I did not hear anything. I am going to have to review the tape.

Ms Gallagher: Mr Hanson said “bullies”.

Mr Hanson: I did not say “corrupt bullies”; I just said “bullies”.

Mr Hargreaves: I am happy to leave it there.

MR SPEAKER: You are happy to leave it?
