Special Minister of State


Mr DREYFUS (IsaacsDeputy Manager of Opposition Business) (14:37): My question is to the Special Minister of State. I refer to the minister's previous answer. How can the diary have been unsolicited when the minister asked James Ashby, by SMS, for a clearer copy, in these words: 'Can that be emailed James it is hard to read Mal.brough2@bigpond.com'?


Mr BROUGH (FisherMinister for Defence Materiel and Science and Special Minister of State) (14:37): The honourable member continues to try to prosecute a case here.

Mr Perrett: They're your words!

The SPEAKER: The member for Moreton will leave under 94(a).

The member fo r Moreton then left the chamber.

Mr BROUGH: Why don't you take a cold shower, wait and allow the judicial system and the legal system to take its course.

Ms Burke interjecting

The SPEAKER: The member for Chisholm is warned!

Mr BROUGH: Or is it the fact that the member for Isaacs knows full well what the outcome of that will be and so he wishes to prosecute it today for his own pathetic political purposes?
