Mr B.S. WYATT: […] We are already seeing some dramatic winds of change blowing through the Liberal Party now that Hon Norman Moore no longer sits in the party room. However, he will be sitting in the Council still! It will contain a painting of Hon Norman Moore.

The ACTING SPEAKER (Ms J.M. Freeman): Member for Victoria Park, I have been reminded that the third reading debate is not a general debate, and whilst I note this issue was raised in consideration in detail, you might want to get back to the Supply Bill.

Mr B.S. WYATT: I know that my colleagues on the other side of the chamber like to reflect on the fact that Hon Norman Moore will be gazing down upon their upper house colleagues well into the future! I do not think they will want to wander through the Legislative Council chamber —

Mr I.C. Blayney: He may get himself elected to this chamber!

Mr B.S. WYATT: He may have his eye on the seat of Geraldton! You never know! I know that Hon Norman Moore still carries some weight, and he will certainly get what he wants. He spent 36 years in the other place, and future members of the Legislative Council will have the pleasure of a large painting of Hon Norman Moore gazing down upon them—

Ms R. Saffioti: With his eyes following them!

Mr B.S. WYATT: — with his eyes following members of the Legislative Council—Mona Lisa style! That will no doubt haunt Hon Peter Collier as he takes over that very powerful role of Leader of the Government in the upper house. I note, Madam Acting Speaker, you are giving me the hairy eyeball, so I will move on.
