Earlier this week, Norman Moore announced that he will not seek re-election in 2013. Closer to the election, we will look at the contributions to debates made by all retiring members, although in Mr. Moore’s case, there has not been a shortage of quotes featured here previously.

418. Hon NORMAN MOORE to the Minister for Local Government and Regional Development:
My question is to the Minister for Local Government and Regional Development.

Hon Tom Stephens: Thank God for that!

Hon NORMAN MOORE: I felt terrible that the minister was sitting there with nothing to do. He needs a reason to be here.

Hon Tom Stephens: Absolutely!

Hon NORMAN MOORE: In case the minister thinks my question is a dorothy dixer when he comes to answer, I tell him now that it actually is a dorothy dixer. I refer to the regional investment tour, which I think is a good idea, and the visit to Tom Price last week. Did the group look at any investment opportunities for potential tourism facilities in the Tom Price-Karijini region? If so, and recognising it was only last week, does the minister have any confidence that some investment proposals will be forthcoming as a result of the visit?

Hon Ljiljanna Ravlich: Are you guys kissing and making up?

Hon TOM STEPHENS replied:
I thank the Leader of the Opposition for his question. The regional investment tour did go to Tom Price.

Hon Norman Moore: Making up but not kissing!

Hon TOM STEPHENS: Just so that we can keep it at a distance, it was one of those rare occasions on which Norman was in his electorate.

Hon Norman Moore: That is an appalling thing to say. I am not trying to get elected to an Assembly seat and I wasn’t using the government jet.

Hon TOM STEPHENS: I was not on the government jet; it was broken.
