your lot

31 May, 2010

Mr CRIPPS: […] I suppose what I am saying to the minister in posing a question in relation to this particular clause is that at the moment it appears that the state government is not giving consideration to the status quo as a viable option for the continuation of the management of drainage systems. I would be very interested to know specifically whether or not a third option—that is, the status quo—is part of the minister’s open mind?

Mr Seeney: Mr Deputy Speaker—

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr O’Brien): Order! Hang on. The question has been asked of the minister and the minister has the right to answer. You can have a turn in a minute.

Mr ROBERTSON: Again I understand where the member for Hinchinbrook is coming from. In
respect to that question I will say that a process was embarked upon and I want to see that process
exhaust itself. I have been informed that that process is not that far away from being completed. I have
heard the member’s plea. It is a plea that has been made to me from other parts of the state as well.
When I give consideration to the report that will be provided to me by my department, I will reflect on that plea.

Mr Cripps: I thank the minister—

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER: Order! I am sorry, member for Hinchinbrook, but you have had your time. You have asked your two—

Mr Cripps: I have only had two.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER: That is right. That is all you get. Undoubtedly they were good questions, but now the member for Callide has the call. I am sure all are eternally grateful for that.
