Mr M. McGOWAN: […] I, as the Minister for the Environment, and the Gallop and Carpenter governments took the view that the Gorgon project, which is a huge investment worth thousands of jobs, should happen. ExxonMobil is perhaps bigger than Chevron, and the Premier has expressed his alternative view in this manner. He may well have backed off from that statement. At the time I thought it was remarkable, but the Premier may have moved away from it now.

Mr C.J. Barnett: No.

Mr M. McGOWAN: No, he has not. I am pleased that the Premier has arrived in the chamber. It is always good to see him.

Mr C.J. Barnett: I was drawn by your barbs. They are like berley being thrown around the Parliament!

Mr P. Papalia: Are you a white pointer?

Mr A.P. O’Gorman: He is a shark.

Mr M. McGOWAN: A gummy shark has arrived!
