Mr Brooks - Offer of Resignation

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.
