    ADJOURNMENT SPEECH

    [6.07 p.m.]

    Ms O'CONNOR (Denison - Leader of the Greens) - Madam Speaker, I was flicking through the notices of question that arrived on our desk today.  It is disappointing to see the number of questions that were put on notice some time ago that have not yet been answered by ministers.  At risk of sounding matronising -

    Mr Jaensch - You can't help that.

    Ms O'CONNOR - I cannot help it from time to time.

    Mr Jaensch - Natural style.

    Madam SPEAKER - Order.  I point out to the member, and I am sure she is aware, that we have not completed that debate, so I ask her to get to a relevant question that does not touch on an order of the day.
