Mr D. L. PAGE, by leave: I wish to make a personal explanation. Earlier in question time, in response to a question about extending funding for the West 2000 program, the Premier said that honourable members on this side of the House did not support extension of the program. I draw the attention of the House to a motion of which I gave notice on 18 November, some six months ago, which stated:
That this House calls on the member for Murray-Darling to join with the New South Wales National Party in lobbying the Minister for Land and Water Conservation to extend the West 2000 program by providing additional funding when the program concludes halfway through next year.
Obviously we were doing the job, and the Premier has got it wrong again.
Mr SPEAKER: Order! The honourable member for Ballina is out of order.
