Members in Their Places

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (14:24): My question is to the Treasurer. What personal responsibility does the Treasurer take for driving business confidence in South Australia to its record low, following three consecutive quarters of decline in business confidence?

The Hon. R.I. LUCAS (Treasurer) (14:24): I welcome the promotion of the Hon. Ms Scriven to, evidently, the Leader of the Opposition’s position. I am not sure that it is actually within the standing orders to move outside your designated seat in the chamber. As soon as there is a vacancy, they move very quickly in the Labor Party. There is a 24-hour gap and zoom, she’s in there.

The PRESIDENT: Keep it on point, the Hon. Mr Lucas.

The Hon. R.I. LUCAS: I am not sure that it’s correct from the standing orders.

The PRESIDENT: I will reflect on the standing orders, but thank you for your advice.
