MR BERRY: I thank the Chief Minister for that, but she should also remember that it was not my department by then. Mr Speaker - - -
Mr Moore: Mr Speaker, on a point of order: He is clearly debating the issue now, Mr Speaker; there is no other interpretation. Mrs Carnell said, "I respond".
MR SPEAKER: Mr Berry, I have given you leave, but I can also withdraw it. Get on with it.
MR BERRY: You certainly can. Mr Speaker, the hospice is in trouble because of Kate Carnell's land deal. There is no other reason.
MR SPEAKER: That is not a personal explanation. Resume your seat. I turn to the presentation of papers.
Mr Moore: I take a point of order. Mr Berry does that so often under standing order 36 just to try us on. If it continues, Mr Speaker, I would suggest that you ought not to give him leave because you know that he is always going to do that.
MR SPEAKER: That is a very good point.
Mr Berry: Mr Speaker, I hope that you will not pay any regard to that. You cannot anticipate the rights of members in this place.
MR SPEAKER: Mr Berry, you have never spoken a truer word.
