14 Apr 2005 questionsarchive

Question put forward to the PRESIDENT regarding regional sittings.

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK: I have a further supplementary question. Mr President, will you undertake to ask the Premier who the interested persons are and whether we can have a full list?

The PRESIDENT: I will take those questions on notice, and they will be taken into consideration.

The Hon. IAN GILFILLAN: I have a supplementary question. Mr President, do you have any objection to the question being put to the council on a motion that the chamber move to a country location and the decision being made by a majority vote?

The PRESIDENT: There are a few constitutional problems in the member’s suggestion. I will have to think more about it before I give a definitive answer.
