MS CARNELL (continuing):
for our favourite picnic spots along the Murrumbidgee River to cool off. Canberra has clean air, beautiful parks and we're two hours from the coast, travelling through countryside, not traffic. We have many great restaurants and hotels; the wildlife is abundant - even the kangaroos lazing in the sun like it here, too. I challenge that gentleman to spend some time in our lovely city and see for himself.
If more of us took that sort of approach when we were outside Canberra, we might just not need a branding exercise.
MR HUMPHRIES (Attorney-General, Minister for Justice and Community Safety and Minister Assisting the Treasurer) (5.53), in reply: Mr Speaker, I table the letter from the Chief Justice which I referred to earlier in debate today and which I have obtained the Chief Justice's permission to produce.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
