Adjournment Energy

Mr RAMSEY (Grey—Government Whip) (16:35): Sometimes you know when you've come into the right place and it's your place in time—when all your little ducks line up, if you like. And so it is with the National Energy Guarantee. I've been in this place since the 2007 election. It wou... ... more
