Personal Explanation HOUSING TRUST

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK (Minister for Human Services) (15:21): I seek leave to make a personal explanation.

Leave granted.

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK: I was asked today whether I had received any correspondence in relation to a matter raised by the Hon. Clare Scriven. I wish to advise the council that I received a letter by email at 2.30 this afternoon, not in the name of the Hon. Ms Scriven but in the name of the member for Hurtle Vale, about an incident that allegedly occurred on Sunday night. The member for Hurtle Vale has my mobile phone number, and I will provide it forthwith to the Hon. Ms Scriven.

Members interjecting:

The PRESIDENT: Perhaps, Treasurer, you can control your own front bench.

Members interjecting:

The PRESIDENT: Don't give me advice—get out. Are we all finished? Leader of the Opposition, I am not telling you off, I would like to get on with things.

The Hon. K.J. Maher: I didn't start it on this occasion, sir.

The PRESIDENT: No; in a rare occurrence that might actually be accurate, but you are not getting any brownie points. Treasurer, let's get on with the business.
