Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 4 Hansard (16 April) . . Page.. 960..

MRS CARNELL (continuing):

I look forward to the support of this Assembly, and I commend this Bill and this new approach to openness in financial management to the Assembly.

MR SPEAKER: You would like to move that the Bill be agreed to in principle, I presume, Chief Minister?


That this Bill be agreed to in principle.

Debate (on motion by Mr Whitecross) adjourned.


MR BERRY (5.17): Mr Speaker, I seek leave to move a motion relating to the appointment of a Select Committee on Additional Estimates.

Leave granted.

(1) a Select Committee on Additional Estimates 1995-96 be appointed to examine the expenditure proposals contained in the Appropriation Bill (No. 2) 1995-96 and any other related matters;
