First Nations Voice to Parliament

The Hon. S.L. GAME (14:43): Supplementary question: I'm wondering if the Attorney-General can answer the question of whether he is comfortable about the focus on race and the focus on the requirement—

The Hon. T.A. FRANKS: Point of order, Mr President: supplementary questions must arise from the answer given.

The PRESIDENT: I understand your point of order, but I am actually going to listen to the supplementary question before I can rule on it. Can you just ask your supplementary question? There is no explanation that goes with that, and I will listen and then rule accordingly.

The Hon. S.L. GAME: I guess I may need some guidance about how I can ask the Attorney-General to answer the question that was asked.

The PRESIDENT: The Attorney-General has provided his answer in the way that he saw fit. It doesn't necessarily mean that he has to answer in a way that you agree with. Unless there is something else, there is no supplementary question, the Hon. Ms Game.
