Mr Mick Gentleman
MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for the Environment, Climate Change and Water, Minister for Energy and Minister for Police and Emergency Services) (5.23): I have just received a note from a former member of this place, Mr Mick Gentleman, and I thought it would be timely given the debate we have just had to relay his comments to members. He obviously has been paying very close attention to the debate we have just had.
Mr Hanson: Streaming, is he?
MR CORBELL: I think he is streaming. So I pay my best regards to him. Madam Assistant Speaker, I would just like to relay the content of this letter that he has provided to me. It is headed:
A.C.T Liberals and Greens use privilege to distort the facts on Feed-in-Tariff
The letter reads:
Shane Rattenbury and Vicky Dunne, in their address to the Assembly on the Feed-in-Tariff, assert that my Labor colleagues did not support my bill on renewable energy. Quite the contrary, the bill was firstly supported by my party at conference, my caucus in the Assembly, the Chief Minister in Weathering the Storm and finally in the Assembly by passing the Bill.
Madam Deputy Speaker, Mr Gentleman ends:
Please do your homework first!
I relay that for the information of members.
