Mr DAVID SHOEBRIDGE: My question without notice is directed to the Minister for Roads and Freight, Minister for the North Coast, and Vice-President of the Executive Council, representing the Premier. When will the Minister publicly reject the comments by the Treasurer quoted in today’s edition of the Daily Telegraph that the Minister, the Minister for Planning and the Premier are “starting air strikes on the Department of Planning”? Will the Minister commit to rejecting the use of this violent language against the State’s hardworking public servants?

The Hon. DUNCAN GAY: Assuming that the quote is correct—and that is always a big assumption when it comes to Mr David Shoebridge—I will take the question on notice and refer it to the Premier.
