Legislative Council: Thursday, May 05, 2022


Ombudsman Investigation, Member for Bragg

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK (15:15): Supplementary arising out of the original answer: is the Attorney-General aware that the Hon. Chris Sumner, as a former Attorney-General in this place, has also had divergent views on opinions expressed by those of another former Attorney-General, those of the Hon. Michael Atkinson?

The Hon. I.K. HUNTER: Point of order: I cannot in any way see how that could come from the original answer.

The PRESIDENT: I note your point of order. I also have concerns as to where the Hon. Mr Atkinson fits into this. The Attorney-General can answer it, if he wishes.

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Attorney-General, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:15): I don't think many of us understood the question, but to the extent that: am I aware that sometimes people have different views from each other? I am sure they do.

The PRESIDENT: The Hon. Mr Pangallo, you have a supplementary question?
