Dr J.M. WOOLLARD: I believe that, under that public policy discretion, the people that the minister wants to have apprehended because of weapons or drugs could be apprehended and that there could be a successful prosecution.

Mr R.F. Johnson: “Could be”, not “will be”. We are in the hands of a magistrate’s discretion or a judge’s discretion. They all rule differently. I am told that there are some cases. I do not know how many, but I am sure we will be able to give them to the member at some stage. The police have told me, and I believe them, that defence lawyers use the grounds —

Ms M.M. Quirk: Defence lawyers are showing —

Mr R.F. Johnson: You can interject in a minute. The member is taking my interjection at the moment.

Mrs M.H. Roberts: You are talking drivel.

Mr R.F. Johnson: Welcome back. It is nice to see you in the chamber once in a blue moon!

Mrs M.H. Roberts: Have you had some nasty pills for dinner?

The ACTING SPEAKER (Mrs L.M. Harvey): The member for Alfred Cove has the call.

Dr J.M. WOOLLARD: This is my time!
