The President made the following Statement:

                 “In reply to the Question asked by the Honourable the Leader of the Opposition in this Council yesterday in relation to Hansard policy, I point out that the Joint Parliamentary Service Committee does not have oversight of the services which Hansard provides to the two Houses of Parliament.  That is very much a matter for the two Houses through their respective Presiding Officer.  The JPSC manages the staffing resources of the Hansard Division of the Joint Services.

                 In respect of the actual issue raised by the Honourable the Leader, I have been advised by the Leader of Hansard that it is Hansard policy to include any Rulings by the Presiding Officer, admonition of a Member or explanation from the Chair.  In the particular instance referred to of 9 May in the House of Assembly, Hansard believed that the Speaker’s words did not fit these criteria.

                 It is Hansard policy not to include an aside by a Member or an interjection that is not replied to by the Member who has the floor.  Hansard believed that the Member who had the floor did not reply.

                 Therefore, in accordance with normal practice, the words were not included.”.
