The NSW Premier and Treasurer used a combined 1197 words in parliament to avoid ruling out further leasing of publicly-owned assets.
The state Coalition has previously leased Port Kembla, as well as the Botany and Newcastle ports, and half the NSW electricity network.
In state parliament Keira MP Ryan Park asked Treasurer Dominic Perrottet and Premier Gladys Berejiklian to say there would be no more so-called "asset recycling".
In a series of statements totalling 674 words, Mr Perrottet declined to answer Mr Park's question whether he'd promise "no more community assets will be sold".
Instead, the Treasurer spoke of Tuesday's budget, the Illawarra Business Chamber, phonics in primary schools, payroll tax and even of getting his staff to trawl through every Hansard in history "until 5 o'clock this morning".

Later Mr Park also asked Ms Berejiklian if she would make same promise.
The Premier claimed she was asked the same question a day earlier; however her response said there was no "list" of planned privatisation options and not a commitment to rule it out.
In parliament on Wednesday, the Premier spoke 523 words, none of which ruled out future privatisations.
Instead she spoke of Mr Park's performance as Labor's Treasury spokesman during the last election - including making the same joke about him being in "witness protection" five times - payroll tax and the lack of a Labor leader.
Only Energy Minister Matt Kean would offer a straight answer on the issue of privatisation.
"We have got no plans to privatise [electricity provider] Ausgrid," he told parliament.
