DR M.D. NAHAN (Riverton) [4.09 pm]: Madam Acting Speaker —

Point of Order

Mr M. McGOWAN: Madam Acting Speaker, you gave the call to the member for Riverton. I am wondering if that was his speech that he just gave because the Premier then ordered him to sit down. I am seeking a ruling as to whether or not the member for Riverton gets to speak.

Mr C.J. Barnett: Everyone is so keen to talk.

The ACTING SPEAKER (Mrs L.M. Harvey): If the member resumes his seat, I give the call to the next person who seeks it. Member for Riverton.

Debate Resumed

Dr M.D. NAHAN: Madam Acting Speaker —

Mr F.M. Logan: That is the best speech he has made since he has been in here!

Dr M.D. NAHAN: The purpose of this debate is for the opposition to take on the heavy lifter in this government. If we look at the issues —

Several members interjected.

Mr P. Papalia: I would not want to lift him!

Dr M.D. NAHAN: Treasury, during the greatest crisis this nation has had in 50 years in terms of budgetary management —

Mr E.S. Ripper: So it is unpatriotic to attack the Treasurer! It is a matter of national security!

Mr P. Papalia: It is un-Australian!

The ACTING SPEAKER: Order, members! I gave the call to the member for Riverton.
