Women's Sporting Events

A supplementary question regarding Women's Sporting Events.

The Hon. D.W. RIDGWAY  (Leader of the Opposition) asked The Hon. G.E. GAGO  (Minister for Employment, Higher Education and Skills, Minister for Science and Information Economy, Minister for the Status of Women, Minister for Business Services and Consumers) a question regarding the Premier’s comment in the Advertiser about capitalising Asia’s interest in sport:

“Instead of going for a premium, existing international event…we might create a new event [and] instead of a major, tier 1 event, you might go for, say, a women's event.”

In Hon G Gago response she stated:

 “…..As I said, we should consider ourselves very fortunate to have a Premier who is such a strong champion for the advancement of women.”

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK  ( 14:30 :00 ): How would the minister have responded if a Liberal had uttered those words?

The Hon. G.E. GAGO  (Minister for Employment, Higher Education and Skills, Minister for Science and Information Economy, Minister for the Status of Women, Minister for Business Services and Consumers)  ( 14:30 :12 ): It's not worth answering, Mr President.
