Mr C.J. BARNETT: […] Of course I am aware that there were negotiations taking place with Chevron. I am aware there were negotiations taking place with other potential buyers of land. I have never been involved in those negotiations or discussions.

Mr W.J. Johnston: Yes, you have.

Mr C.J. BARNETT: No; never ever.

Mr W.J. Johnston interjected.

Mr C.J. BARNETT: Listen—never ever!

Mr W.J. Johnston: You have. You said it here.

Mr C.J. BARNETT: I have not, my friend! Listen to what I am saying. I have never sat down at the table and negotiated the sale of that land.

Withdrawal of Remark

Ms M.M. QUIRK: The Premier referred to the member for Cannington as “my friend”.

The ACTING SPEAKER: There is no point of order.

Ms M.M. QUIRK: I hate to repeat myself. He is either lying or not complying with standing orders—one or the other!

The ACTING SPEAKER: There is no point of order. The Premier has the floor.

Mr C.J. BARNETT: In the spirit of goodwill, I withdraw. The member for Cannington is not my good friend!
