Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 5 Hansard (15 May) . . Page.. 1296..
Mr Berry: Mr Speaker, on the basis that Mrs Carnell has tabled letters - - -
MR SPEAKER: Is this a point of order, Mr Berry?
Mr Berry: I will speak in support of the motion. I will speak to my motion, Mr Speaker. I am the only person who can really speak.
MR SPEAKER: You will have to move the motion. So far, all we have voted on is the suspension of standing orders.
That Mrs Carnell (Chief Minister) be required to table letters she referred to at page 61 of the proof Hansard yesterday.
Mr Kaine: Mr Speaker, surely since the Minister has already performed the action that the member is seeking, his motion is out of order.
MR BERRY: Mr Speaker, if I may speak to the point of order, the fact of the matter is that standing orders have been suspended to allow a certain course of action in this chamber, and that is all that can happen. I have moved the motion. I am prepared to withdraw it on the basis that the documents Mrs Carnell claims to be the letters she referred to yesterday have been tabled.
Motion, by leave, withdrawn.
