The Hon. RICK COLLESS: I ask a question of the Treasurer, representing the Minister for Health. Was a so-called vigil conducted outside the gates of Parliament House yesterday and today in support of a ban on the killing of red kangaroos? Did the protesters dump the carcass of a kangaroo on the Macquarie Street footpath as part of their protest? What are the health risks associated with disposing of dead animals in this manner, and what action could be taken against the protesters for this disgusting display?
The Hon. MICHAEL EGAN: The first part of the honourable member's question contains argument. He referred to a so-called vigil; that obviously is an argument. Therefore I will not answer that part of the question. In relation to the other parts of the question, I have to admit I do not know the answer. I will refer those parts to my colleague for a response.
