(1) Have you read
(2) Do you
endorse the content of the document?
(3) Are you aware
that at page 22 it is stated that ''the final legislation will be based
on the Joint Select Committee recommendations and the Victorian legislation. It
will contain an armada of more than 60 provisions to ensure impeccable
standards of conduct''?
(4) Further to

I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
