Hon ADELE FARINA: […] In response to Hon Simon O’Brien’s contribution to this debate that ministers would need to go through documents and cross out the email addresses of departmental officers and ministerial staff or their position titles, I say that, as clearly specified in the schedule to the act, they are not required to do that and it
would take a lot less time in processing the FOI application if they stopped doing that, because we can work out what the email address is. We have all been around for long enough to know that it is their first name, their surname and the department address. So, why bother whiting it out? This makes absolutely no sense to me.

Hon Ljiljanna Ravlich: Tricky, tricky, tricky!

Hon ADELE FARINA: It is not even tricky; it is just plain silly.

Hon Peter Collier: You are wrong again, Ljil!

Point of Order

Hon LJILJANNA RAVLICH: I do object to the member calling me “Ljil” across the chamber. If he wants to address me, then he should do it in the proper manner.

The PRESIDENT: Members know that they must address other members according to their proper title. I think that is well understood and should be adhered to.

Hon Peter Collier: Thank you, Mr President.

Hon Ljiljanna Ravlich: Smart alec!

Hon Peter Collier: Wrong again, Hon Ljiljanna Ravlich!
