QUESTIONS WITHOUT NOTICE
MR WHITECROSS: Mr Speaker, my question without notice is to Mr De Domenico in his capacity as the Minister for Business and also as the Minister for Industrial Relations.
Mr Humphries: He is this week, is he? He was not last time we sat.
MR WHITECROSS: Maybe he is. I do not know. You tell me.
Minister, I would like you to clarify for the record something that you said yesterday. Yesterday you said that 2,300 jobs had been created in just one year of the Government's present term; but, on 23 November last year, you said that 6,700 jobs had been created. Does this mean that 4,400 jobs have been lost since November last year?
