ASSEMBLY Questions without notice and ministers statements DANIEL ANDREWS

Mr ANDREWS (Premier) (11:30:19) — I thank the Leader of the Opposition, and I will be delighted to check the facts as he has put them to me.

Honourable members interjecting.

Mr ANDREWS — Well, I will be. I will check what he has presented to me because he has demonstrated these last four years that it is worth doing that — checking what he says.

Honourable members interjecting.

The SPEAKER — Order! I ask members to cease shouting across the chamber.

Mr ANDREWS — Beyond that, maybe the Leader of the Opposition doesn't know this, but I think there are more people on remand today than there has been at any point in the state's history. The remand and bail court, the toughest bail laws in our nation — again, all reform that had to be done by this government because of what was left to us by those opposite, who are very good at talking tough, but when it comes to actually getting the job done their record is appalling.
