Answering questions

In “Questioning questions” Di asked, “Did Kuensel report correctly that you were in the end supporting the PM in that the ministers need not attend QT?”

If that was what Kuensel reported, they are wrong. I did not say that ministers need not attend the National Council’s Question Time. What I did say, however, was that I appreciated our government’s efforts to accommodate the NC, as we, in the National Assembly, were told by the PM.

What I also said was that, as far as the opposition sees it, the issue is between the Cabinet and the National Council. And that, as such, we will not say that the ministers must attend the NC’s Question Time, or that they don’t have to attend.

But, I appealed to the government to discuss the matter with the National Council, so that the current standoff is resolved.
