Mr Brooks - Offer of Resignation
Ms O'CONNOR question to PREMER, Mr HODGMAN
I will give you one more opportunity to make sure the public and Hansard
records are correct. Did Mr Brooks offer his resignation to you following
his performance at the Estimates table and subsequent public shaming? Did
he offer it you but you rejected it because, despite his appalling conduct,
you calculated that you needed him in here and in Braddon?
Madam Speaker, for the second time, no, that is not true. As recently as
this morning, Adam Brooks has confirmed it is his intention to continue to
serve as a member for Braddon. He will take time to address medical
concerns on the advice of his doctor. It is his intention not to go
anywhere. I reject the suggestion made by the Leader of the Opposition.
Ms O'CONNOR - Point of order, Madam Speaker. This is a very serious
question. The Premier needs to be very honest with this House. I raise
standing order 45; relevance. Did Mr Brooks offer you his resignation
following his misleading actions in 2016?
Madam SPEAKER - Unfortunately, that is not a point of order. I will have
to ignore it.
