Motion for Adjournment: The Hon Mr Ian Hansen, MLA 30/01

Motion for Adjournment: The Hon Mr Ian Hansen, MLA

Thank you Mr Speaker, Honourable members, in rising to support the Motion for Adjournment I still am in a slight state of shock about the length of the Honourable Gavin Shorts speech. I think the format we have just seen on portfolio holders reporting to this House is a good format. I think its worked well. And it is my turn at the next Assembly. I think it gives the general public a better idea of the size of the portfolios and the involvements of Members. As I say it is my turn at the next Assembly so I wont speak about my portfolio other than to just mention the privatisation of the IT Department recently. I would very much like to take this opportunity to thank the staff who have been moved to other Departments. But they have worked there for many, many years and though some of the locations arent ideal for them, I thank them very much for all the work they have done there.

I was very privileged to be invited on Sunday last to Liberty Lodge to celebrate the 5th Anniversary through its opening. This is one of the things, I think, that FIG along with veterans from 82  its been a great achievement and I think it has been a huge success. And as I say I was very privileged to be invited. I would like to thank Tony Martin and Smoky (Coles) for extending that invitation.

And finally, Mr Speaker, I would like to welcome the Deputy Speaker to this House.

I support the Motion.
