Hon KEN TRAVERS: Does Hon Simon O’Brien accept it is a broken promise?

Hon Simon O’Brien: I was pointing out your disingenuousness in trying to develop this theme that we are given to broken promises whilst at the same time pursuing this course of action which breaks a promise, an undertaking, given to and adopted by the house on Tuesday. That was my point. Talk about that. Why didn’t you bring this up on Tuesday?

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Order, members! Hon Simon O’Brien does not have the call. Hon Ken Travers has the call.

Hon KEN TRAVERS: I want to be clear about this. Is Hon Simon O’Brien saying that he accepts that this bill is a broken promise?

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Members, given the time I will leave the chair until the ringing of the bells.

Hon Simon O’Brien: Now you will never know what happens! It’s a cliffhanger!

Debate interrupted, pursuant to standing orders.
