When speaking to the Inspector of Custodial Services Bill 2012 in the NSW Legislative Assembly on Wednesday 20 June, Chris Gulaptis, Member for Clarence, uttered these words:
"... The (Grafton Correctional) centre is listed on the New South Wales State Heritage Register as one of the few jail complexes in Australia designed by private architects. I recommend that members in this Chamber visit the place. I have visited it on a number of occasions. ... "
Well, knock me down with a feather. What was the local MP really saying? Has he spent "time" at that place? Does he reckon some of his parliamentary colleagues should be bed and breakfast "guests" at that place?
Take care, Mr Gulaptis, those words could come back as haunting words.
