Statement from the Speaker

Sue Hickey, Speaker of the House of Assembly & Liberal Member for Clark

As I’ve indicated very clearly to the House previously, I have guaranteed support for a Majority Liberal Government for the term of this Parliament on matters of supply and confidence. That remains the case.
I also indicated at the outset that on all other matters, I will always consider my position on legislation on the merits of the argument, which is what I did yesterday.
Nothing has changed with my position. The Liberal Government was elected with a mandate to deliver on its plan, and I have voted with the Government on every piece of legislation in its plan to deliver on its agenda.
Whilst I may have disagreed with the Government on the social issue debated yesterday, my guarantee on supply and confidence remains in place, and there is no minority government.

    Sue, you have not read or assessed the evidence at all .. or heard debate on any risk assessment of these legislative changes.

    Not impartial at all, and will not augur well for the next election.
