McKenzie, Senator the Hon. Bridget
Mr President, on a point of order: given the contribution made by Senator Rice, who is a member of the committee investigating the matters that she traversed, she has clearly already determined the matter. I'm wondering as to the appropriateness of that and whether she should now be disqualified from the committee, having predetermined the matter and having made the pronouncement that certain actions were corrupt. One would assume, therefore, that no more hearings are required, and the committee can be wrapped up.
