At 10 minutes on the final question the Chair gets politicised. What is the Deputy Bailiff doing? Should he be suggesting what the Minister says?

Thanks TJW. I wonder if there is any chance (if you have the recording) of putting up Monty's question to the CM (without notice), where he asks him why the interested parties in the Committee of Inquiry were not informed of the involvement of Williamson.

His answer that it was an 'oversight' beggared belief. How can you overlook the most important people in all this - abuse survivors?

If you could put this up it would be interesting for those who did not hear it.

Hi Jill.

I'm sorry but I had a technical fault with the recording of Questions to the Chief Minister.
My recorder is on its way out. There is to much interference to publish it.

Thank you for asking for a request.

TJW.
