Member for Bragg, Speaker's Statement

The Hon. H.M. GIROLAMO (15:18): Supplementary: the question was relating to whether you as Attorney-General were aware of the letter before or during the same time as the Speaker received the letter?

Members interjecting:

The Hon. H.M. GIROLAMO: When were you aware of the letter?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Attorney-General, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:19): If I can just ask so I can respond sensibly, which letter are you referring to my knowledge of?

The Hon. H.M. GIROLAMO: The letter that was dated 26 April 2022 from the Hon. Vickie Chapman to the Speaker: when were you made aware of that letter?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER: I certainly wasn't aware of that letter until after the advice had been sought.
