Ms PATTEN (Northern Metropolitan) (12:33): As a member of the Scrutiny of Acts and Regulations Committee I take great offence at Mr Davis’s description of the work we did. But I would also just like to note that the Liberal members of SARC are rarely there.
Mr Smith, certainly we have not seen him for quite some time, and Mr Burgess, I would have to note, was relatively silent on this bill.
SARC discussed this bill and scrutinised this bill for 2½ hours. The report reflects that scrutiny, and I would suggest that if the opposition wants to play a role in SARC, turn up.
