diligence. Do not go giving it to a third party. That is inappropriate and, I dare say, is bordering on an illegal delegation of powers. It is definitely improper. It is not what the people of the ACT elected that government over there to do. You could probably even question whether they were properly elected, given that they are in there by the sole vote of one crossbench member. The majority of votes did not go to those parties that formed government at the last election. They are clinging on by their fingernails and they are doing everything they can to use their numbers to hide from any scrutiny. That should be absolutely deplored.

Questions without notice

MR BARR: I do not believe that is the case.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Hanson.

MR HANSON: What due diligence did your government exercise when you became aware of the conflicting roles of the lobbyist representing at least two of the parties, possibly three?
