If there are any more letters that I have missed—that would in fact validate the claim that you have made in public that you have been in touch with me on numerous occasions in relation to valuation—I would appreciate them. In fact, this house will find it important for you to provide them.

Industrial relations

Debate resumed.

MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo—Minister for Education and Training, Minister for Children, Youth and Family Support, Minister for Women and Minister for Industrial Relations) (3.34): I will gladly take my second 15 minutes if the opposition is not interested in talking about the impact of the federal government’s industrial relations reforms on the ACT. I presume that, because of the extensive briefings Mr Mulcahy has had over recent months, he knows what is in it and that it is all good for the ACT, which is why they do not need to worry about participating in this discussion on it.
