Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 4 Hansard (16 April) . . Page.. 960..
MRS CARNELL (continuing):
just about every single year since self-government and, in the past, all that has been done is that the figures have been juggled, behind closed doors usually. We will not take this approach. 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?
MRS CARNELL: I move:
That this Bill be agreed to in principle.
Debate (on motion by Mr Whitecross) adjourned.
