Reverend the Hon. Dr GORDON MOYES: I ask the Treasurer, representing the Minister for Police, a question without notice. Is the Minister aware that an 84-year-old Umina Beach resident named Gwen Byrne recently had her vehicle stolen from outside her home on Melbourne Cup evening? Is the Minister aware that when Mrs Byrne reported the incident to the Woy Woy police, she was advised by the Woy Woy police officers to call back once she had found it? Could the Minister enlighten the House on how Mrs Byrne may come across her car if she has no other means of transport and why it is her job to look for it? Also, can the Minister indicate the New South Wales Police Force standard operating procedures for investigating car theft and why this matter has not been appropriately investigated according to New South Wales Police Force procedures?

The Hon. ERIC ROOZENDAAL: I will pass the question on to the Minister for his response.
