Mr NEWMAN (BASS, TASMANIA) (Minister for Environment, Housing and Community Development) - I cannot say with any assurance that the demonstrators had a copy of the statement that I was to make on that day. The information I have received is that they did have it. I can say that only one statement was issued from my office, in accordance with the norms of this House. That was 2 hours before I made the statement and the copy was issued to the Opposition. No other statements were issued from my office. I would not like to make any supposition, as distinct from presenting the facts I have given, as to how that copy may have arrived with the demonstrators.
