been at it so long

7 March, 2012

Mr J.R. QUIGLEY: […] It is that narrower point that the amendment I have moved seeks to address, not the wider point as to whether juveniles —

Mr R.F. Johnson: You have not moved the amendment yet.

Mr J.R. QUIGLEY: Yes; I have moved it.

The ACTING SPEAKER (Mr A.P. O’Gorman): The amendment has been moved.

Mr C.C. Porter: It was so long ago now I have forgotten!

Mr R.F. Johnson: It seems like a lifetime ago!

Mr J.R. QUIGLEY: Not if you’re as old as we are, Leader of the House! A lifetime is a long while; this is only a short while.

Mr R.F. Johnson: It seems a lifetime on every clause in this bill.

Mr J.R. QUIGLEY: I would like to say, in response to that, Leader of the House —

Mr R.F. Johnson: You don’t have to respond to me.

Mr J.R. QUIGLEY: No; I do. We on this side of the house appreciate these clauses not being guillotined. I recall that another party of a different complexion in power in New South Wales guillotined just about every clause and punched it through the Assembly and Council in 24 hours. It was all torn asunder by the High Court, but this is such important legislation —

Dr A.D. Buti: Don’t give him any ideas!
