chain of command

27 December, 2013

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON: […] Immediate action was promised on the Stokes review on 14 November 2012. What have we seen since? Very bloody little, I have to say.

Withdrawal of Remark

The PRESIDENT: Order! I ask you to withdraw that.

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON: I withdraw. I beg your pardon, Mr President; I do feel passionate about this issue and I forgot I was in the chamber and not out on the footy field. I beg your pardon.

Debate Resumed

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON: But I do feel passionate about this issue on which there has been very, very little action—we have certainly not seen immediate action on it.

Hon Helen Morton: You haven’t.

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON: None of us has seen immediate action on this issue.

Hon Helen Morton: Some people have.

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON: Mr Acting President, Mr Deputy President—Mr President! My goodness, I am confused this morning! I beg your pardon, Mr President. I might be confused about whom I am addressing, but I am certainly not confused about this issue today.

The PRESIDENT: You can do anything except demote me!

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON: I promise I will not; you have my vote, Mr President!
