The Hon. C. BONAROS (14:34): Further supplementary: did the minister consult before making her decision—when she provided a ministerial statement in here yesterday?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:34): Thank you. I need to know which decision the member is referring to.

The PRESIDENT: The Hon. Ms Bonaros for clarification.

The Hon. C. BONAROS: Did the minister consult before determining not to appeal the decision and follow the line that she outlined into this chamber yesterday?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN: I have already answered the question. There is a misapprehension that I have not appealed. There were already appeals in place which have been determined.

Members interjecting:

The PRESIDENT: The Hon. Ms Bonaros, do you have a supplementary question?
