Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 2 Hansard (27 February) . .
Business of the Assembly
MR HUMPHRIES (Attorney-General) (5.09), in reply: Mr Speaker,
I want to make reference to the reason why we are adjourning at this point in
the proceedings. It is true that the Government wants to have matters Nos 5 to
8 of Executive business orders of the day to debate tomorrow. The reason is
that the matters that were listed on the draft program for tomorrow were
matters that are, I think, almost exclusively the responsibility of Mr
Stefaniak, who may not be present tomorrow, for reasons which we all
understand. Therefore, the Government has quite deliberately wanted to put
that business over for tomorrow's debate. Mr Berry was on his feet when I
discussed it with other members. I am sorry that I did not tell him about it
Question resolved in the affirmative.
Assembly adjourned at 5.10 pm
