Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 8 Hansard (27 June) . . Page.. 2236..
Mr Moore: On the point of order, Mr Speaker: It is worse than that. I took an equivalent point of order on quite a number of occasions and you indicated to Mr Humphries that he was not to persist. He persisted in wilfully disobeying your ruling. He should be named, Mr Speaker, under standing order 202(e).
Mr Humphries: Mr Speaker, you ruled in my favour on every occasion.
MR SPEAKER: Yes, I did. The presentation speech has been made. It appears that the Assembly are satisfied with it, because nobody has suggested that the debate be adjourned so that everybody can have an opportunity to refute any of Mr Humphries's comments with which they disagree when the debate comes up again. I do not think Mr Humphries is going to be hurt about that. That is the situation. As I have said earlier, I believe that Mr Humphries's comments are in order. I do not uphold the point of order but I seek now for somebody to adjourn this debate.
Debate (on motion by Mrs Carnell) adjourned.
MR HUMPHRIES (Attorney-General) (11.11): Mr Speaker, I present the Liquor (Amendment) Bill (No. 2) 1996, together with its explanatory memorandum.
Title read by Clerk.
MR HUMPHRIES: Mr Speaker, I move:
That this Bill be agreed to in principle.
I ask for leave to have my presentation speech incorporated in Hansard.
Speech incorporated at Appendix 3.
Debate (on motion by Ms Follett) adjourned.
