Personal explanation

MR RATTENBURY (Molonglo): Madam Assistant Speaker, I seek leave to make a statement under standing order 46.

MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER (Ms Le Couteur): Leave is granted.

MR RATTENBURY: Yesterday in this chamber, Mr Hanson made a statement in regards to Greens MLAs regarding their attitudes to science and scientists. He suggested the Greens MLAs, myself included, supported vile and intimidating actions directed towards scientists.

I can assure the Assembly and Mr Hanson that neither I nor any Green MLA condones any kind of violence or intimidating behaviour towards another person—ever. There is no place for personal intimidation or violence in our society at all. My personal values on this are absolutely unequivocal.


Motion (by Mr Barr) proposed:

That the Assembly do now adjourn.
