First Nations Voice to Parliament

The Hon. L.A. HENDERSON (15:11): Minister, can you please advise if you believe the behaviour of those in the gallery on Tuesday was appropriate in the showing of text on hands and commentary and clapping throughout and, I understand, turning backs on members of parliament as well?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:11): In my experience, sometimes it's better to stay silent than prove the point that's being made.
