MR SPEAKER: A supplementary, Ms Le Couteur.

MS LE COUTEUR: Minister, given that part of 306 has been given interim effect, will this be extended until the next Assembly’s planning committee has time to report and the DV is presumably presented in the next Assembly?

I would invite you to answer the question.

MR CORBELL: I need to consider my position on the matter, Mr Speaker.
