Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 8 Hansard (26 June) . . Page.. 2197..


MR HUMPHRIES (continuing):

I thank members for their support. I emphasise that we have some work to do yet to make the system more accountable or more open, but I must say that, in terms of distance travelled in recent days, we have come a very long way. I think it would be nice for the Opposition particularly, who talk about the so-called problem of decentralisation, to at least acknowledge once in a public place that the abolition of fees has been a pretty significant means of allowing ordinary people to get better FOI access in this Territory.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill agreed to in principle.

Leave granted to dispense with the detail stage.

Bill agreed to.

POSTPONEMENT OF ORDERS OF THE DAY

That orders of the day Nos 2 and 3, Executive business, relating to the Betting (Corporatisation) (Consequential Provisions) Bill 1996 and the Betting (Corporatisation) (Consequential Amendments) Bill 1996 be postponed until the next day of sitting.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

MR SPEAKER: It being 5.00 pm, I propose the question:

That the Assembly do now adjourn.
