Bar now no-go

By JENI FAULKNER

ANDREW Fraser has vowed not to drink while sitting in parliament after Government accusations he may have been under the influence during his attack on NSW Minister for Roads Joe Tripodi on Tuesday night.

"I have said I will not drink while the House is sitting because I am sick of the lies," Mr Fraser said.

"The hypocrisy of the Labor Government angers me."

After the incident in parliament, Mr Fraser walked into Kings Cross Police Station and asked for a breath analysis test, an action he took because he believed stories would surface he was drunk at the time of the incident.

It has been reported that Mr Fraser consumed one glass of wine at the parliamentary bar before the sitting.

Yesterday Mr Fraser focused his attention on upgrades to the Pacific Highway at Moonee. He is arguing against the seagull intersection which is currently under construction at Moonee Beach turn-off.

"This intersection is not going to be good enough because the supermarket, when completed, will create a huge increase in traffic," he said.

"My daughter will be working at this complex and she will be driven there by my son or my wife and I am fearful."

The intersection has been approved jointly by the RTA and the Coffs Harbour City Council.
