Question without notice: Duck season (point of order)

On a point of order, President, yesterday I asked the Minister for Agriculture a question about children on the wetlands during the duck shooting season. The minister was good enough to supply an answer as required by you, and that answer implies that children under 12 years old should not be on the wetlands.

Ms Pennicuik — On a point of order, President, yesterday I asked the Minister for Agriculture a question about children on the wetlands during the duck shooting season. The minister was good enough to supply an answer as required by you, and that answer implies that children under 12 years old should not be on the wetlands. My supplementary question was: what advice was given to authorised officers with regard to children on the water? The minister did not address that in her written response, and I request that she provide a further response addressing this issue.

Ms Pulford — On the point of order, President, Ms Pennicuik raised this with me earlier today. I think we agree this is a very serious matter. The member is requiring some further information, and I am happy to provide a further written response to the supplementary question from yesterday.
