The President, pursuant to Sessional Order, made the following Statement concerning a request for a Citizen’s Right of Reply:

         “I have to advise that I have received a letter from Mr. John Rumbelow, Chief Executive Officer of the District Council of Streaky Bay, requesting a Right of Reply in accordance with the Sessional Standing Order passed by this Council on 30 May 2006.

         In his letter of 10 July 2006, Mr. Rumbelow considers that the Hon. S. M. Kanck has shown Council in a ‘bad light’ by what he claims to be “untruthful comments” in her second reading speech on the Development (Panels) Amendment Bill in this Council on 30 May 2006.

         Following the procedures set out in the Sessional Standing Order, I have given consideration to this matter and believe that it complies with the requirements of the Sessional Standing Order.  Therefore I grant the request and direct that Mr. Rumbelow’s reply be incorporated in Hansard.”
