I find that the member for Millner's question contravened this standing order. Mr PARISH: Mr Speaker, I withdraw the word 'shonky'. Mr SPEAKER: Thank you very much. Mr PARISH: In reply to a question asked yesterday, the minister stated that the fee to be paid to Oxley Corporate Finance, to wind up the tax avoidance scheme in which the Territory government has been involved, is based on the money the government will save by disposing of the Darwin 682
