7          Speaker's Statement ‑ Privilege

The Speaker made the following statement:

Last Thursday the Member for Bright alleged that a breach of privilege had  ccurred, in that the Minister of Correctional Services had obtained acopy of a statement made by the Member to Police in relation to acriminal investigation.  He alleged that the Minister had said "theMember for Bright gave a statement to a detective sergeant at 5.30yesterday evening.  The statement is here and, if anyone wishes to seeit, it is available."

Having had the opportunity of perusing the Hansard I make the   followingobservations:

The Minister did say that he obtained a copy of the Member's statement to  the Police and it was available to anyone who wanted to see it.

The Minister did not read the statement into Hansard, but read what  appears to be a report from the Commissioner of Police on the Member forBright's original question.

While the obtaining of any evidence by the Minister from the Police is a  matter between them, the publishing of it in the way the Minister did couldinterfere with the Member's ability to effectively carry out his duties to hisconstitutents and accordingly could be a breach of the privilege of the House.

I therefore rule that a prima facie case of a breach of privilege   hasbeen made out and propose to give precedence to a motion in relation to it.

 

            Privileges Committee ‑ Motion for

Mr Matthew then moved ‑ That this House establish a Privileges Committee to

examine the events resulting in the breach, including the related actionsof any other Minister or Government officer.

Debate ensued.

Question put.
