Mr M. McGOWAN: […] Anyone who has been out there will know that there are communities that are as different from Subiaco as places on other continents; they are completely different. These officers will be required to perform a range of duties for which they will not be trained, because that is the nature of what happens.

If such an officer arrived in Yuna and was expected to perform a duty that did not fall within his guidelines and he refused to do it, one of two things will happen. That officer will be ostracised by the rest of the police force, as members can imagine; the other officers will say, “Just do it, will you?” Anyone who has ever been to Yuna will know that it is out of the way. I do not mean to pick on Yuna; it is probably in your electorate, Mr Speaker! It was a lovely town the time I went there! The cappuccino strip was wonderful!

The SPEAKER: I think you drank all the cappuccinos!

Mr M. McGOWAN: I do not think there has been a cappuccino in Yuna for a long time!
