heeding the call-up

Mr P.B. WATSON: […] As parents, we are role models in every other way. Parents do not smoke in the house and do not drink in front of their children, but they will eat large amounts of food, setting a bad example for the children. I know that the Premier’s Physical Activity Taskforce is doing a very good job, but are we getting the message to where it is really needed? We already do it in the schools, but we should educate the parents also.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: Oh dear, member for Albany, your mobile phone is ringing!

Ms J.A. Radisich: Busted!

Mr P.B. WATSON: Busted. Sorry about that, Madam Deputy Speaker.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: Indeed.

Ms J.A. Radisich: That is not setting a very good example!

Mr P.B. WATSON: There are role models in every way, and I have just been a bad example to the rest of the house!
