When it comes to the record of the greyhound industry in the ACT, we have had reports of abuse here in the ACT, and I think we have seen—

The quote then ends, because Mr Coleman interjected and demanded that I provide examples. I probably could have answered more crisply at the time. What I was speaking to was the fact that both the Durkin report and the McHugh report in New South Wales, which I spoke about extensively in this place on Tuesday night, have identified instances in the ACT. I was not suggesting that I had individual information.

I provide that for the clarity of members, and also for the Canberra Greyhound Racing Club, who have now gone down the preposterous path of suggesting that I have withheld that information and who have therefore decided to report that matter to the police, in what can only be described as a terrible waste of police resources in this territory. Given the opposition’s concern about police resources, they should perhaps discuss that matter with those they are so keenly supporting.
