MR SPEAKER: I will make inquiries about that.
Ms McRae: It may have been an inadvertent oversight in regard to our side, I do not know; but at the moment we have not been informed.
MR SPEAKER: I will have to make inquiries on this matter then.
Mrs Carnell: Does it matter?
Ms McRae: Yes, it does. We will have a new member next month. It is stupid.
MR SPEAKER: Yes, we will. I will make inquiries.
AUTHORITY TO RECORD AND BROADCAST PROCEEDINGS
Motion (by Mr Humphries), by leave, agreed to:
That the Assembly authorises:
(1) the recording on video tape without sound by television networks of proceedings during question time today, 22 February 1996; and
(2) the use by any television station of any part of the recorded proceedings in subsequent news, current affairs and documentary programs and not for the purposes of satire or ridicule.
MS FOLLETT: Mr Speaker, I direct a question to the Minister for Industrial Relations, Mr De Domenico. Minister, this morning on ABC radio Mr Paul Monagle from Confact stated that Catholic nuns should refrain from commenting about industrial relations. In fact, he said that they had never been employees or employers and that they knew nothing of industrial relations. Given that Catholic nuns in this Territory run one of our two major hospitals, our only hospice, one of our universities, dozens of our schools and many community services, does the Minister for Industrial Relations agree with Confact's position that nuns should not comment on industrial relations?
