MR C.C. PORTER (Bateman — Attorney General) [9.09 pm] — in reply: I thank members for their contributions. Indeed, it is fascinating legislation and both speakers highlighted some very interesting aspects of it. Indeed, I also was interested in what phthisis was and asked the Minister for Health, our renowned doctor. He did not know. He looked it up on his iPad!

Mr M. McGowan: He knows a lot about lawyers.

Mr C.C. PORTER: Indeed. But it does not give me great confidence to go to my general practitioner and see them looking up terms on their iPad and telling me how they work!

Mr M. McGowan: You could have done that!

Mr C.C. PORTER: Indeed, and saved myself the wait in the consulting room and the exorbitant fee for the medicine charge!

Dr K.D. Hames: What is that about lawyers? You are nearly as good as what you pay for!

Mr C.C. PORTER: Indeed; I can tell members that they are getting all of us very cheaply tonight!
