Hon NORMAN MOORE: […] Members are aware that in 1901 WA became part of the Federation, and Western Australians have been complaining about that ever since! I might mention a bit more about that at the end of my comments tonight.

Hon Kate Doust: Is this leading up to talk of your secession?

Hon NORMAN MOORE: There is succession and secession.

Hon Kate Doust: I know; it came out incorrectly.

Hon Ken Travers: I am just worried that we will be tested on this at the end of your speech.

Hon NORMAN MOORE: You will be. Did I not tell you? I hope you are taking notes, Mr Travers!

Hon Ken Travers: So far I know that you bought 50 acres in Toodyay to try to win back the family land.

Hon NORMAN MOORE: Go to the top of the class, Mr Travers!
