The Speaker referred to the matter of privilege raised by Mr Tanner on 24 June 2002 concerning a threat of legal action against him that he said had been made by representatives of Telstra at a meeting relating to his shadow portfolio responsibilities.

The Speaker stated that as he did not have sufficient information to make a final decision on the Member's complaint, he could therefore not give precedence to a motion at this time.

Mr Tanner, by indulgence, spoke further to the matter.
