the final countdown (iv)

Our next entry for this historic Grand Final week takes back to 2006 again, and to what is perhaps our favourite overall legislation in terms of the debates it started: the Daylight Saving Bill (no. 2) 2006.

Hon ANTHONY FELS: […] There are still a lot of questions that have been left unanswered by the government. It is up to members on this side of the house to keep the government accountable. We have not had that opportunity and we will not have that opportunity until later if this bill is not referred to a committee now.
Western Australia has the best economy in Australia. We won the Australian Football League grand final this year. The committee ought to consider why Western Australia is different.

Several members interjected.

Hon ANTHONY FELS: We are, and we dare to be different.

Hon Ken Travers: You should have a committee for us to look at why the Dockers haven’t won the premiership!

Hon ANTHONY FELS: The member can make a submission on that issue!

Subject: Daylight Saving Bill (No. 2) 2006 [Legislative – Discharge of Order and Referral to Standing Committee on Legislation]
