power struggles

31 August, 2007

Dr G.G. Jacobs: Tell us about the costs of the high-voltage powerline project to Southdown.

Mr F.M. LOGAN: The member has already raised this issue; he raised it in his initial speech. He needs to take note of what I have said to him, because it is important. It goes to the point that the member brought into the chamber, and we have now wasted a lot of time.

Dr G.G. Jacobs: That’s good; I’ll tell the constituents that.

Mr F.M. LOGAN: The member can tell his constituents whatever he likes.

Dr G.G. Jacobs: We need to explore these issues. That’s what this place is about. Don’t say it’s a waste of time.

Mr F.M. LOGAN: If the member for Roe had done a bit more research on this subject –

Dr G.G. Jacobs: I’ve got more research about the costs of this than you’ve actually provided today!

Mr F.M. LOGAN: Exactly! That is the member for Roe’s problem. He has done all his research in the wrong area. He is a parliamentarian; if he had started with the act and worked forward, he would have answered this question for himself before he went off and wasted his time on his research. He started at the wrong point in his research.

Dr G.G. Jacobs: We are talking about vision, Minister. We are talking about power provision for the region.

Mr F.M. LOGAN: Being a member for Parliament, he should know better.

Mr M.J. Birney: It’s actually “member of Parliament”.

Mr F.M. LOGAN: Member of Parliament; I thank the member for Kalgoorlie very much indeed. That is the best interjection we have had in this entire debate! I thank the member very much.

Mr M.J. Birney: No problem.
