Mr T.G. STEPHENS: The member is in a very fortuitous situation as housing minister because he has a very good friend who is the Treasurer. That puts him in a different position from many of his predecessors.

Mr T.R. Buswell: I am not sure that the department would agree with that.

Mr T.G. STEPHENS: Did the minister see The Mikado on the weekend?

Mr T.R. Buswell: I went to AC/DC.

Mr T.G. STEPHENS: I did not see it this time but there was a character in The Mikado that I thought the minister might understand —

Mr T.R. Buswell: Angus looked like a miniature version of you!

Mr T.G. STEPHENS: I was thinking of the Pooh-Bah character. He is able to have a conversation with himself in a variety of different roles. In the housing minister’s case, there is a chance that he will talk to the Treasurer, hopefully persuading him to give the flow of funds that are necessary to respond to the urgent situation with which we are faced.
