PLANNING AND ENVIRONMENT - STANDING COMMITTEE
Printing, Circulation and Publication of Report

MR MOORE (12.34): Mr Speaker, I ask for leave to make a statement on the work of the Standing Committee on Planning and Environment.

Leave granted.

MR MOORE: I thank members. Mr Speaker, the Standing Committee on Planning and Environment is preparing a report on the issues raised at the 1996 National Conference of Australian Parliamentary Works Committees that was hosted by the Assembly in August 1996. I also ask for leave of the Assembly to move a motion in relation to the report being prepared by the standing committee.

Leave granted.

MR MOORE: I move:

That:

(1) if the Assembly is not sitting when the Standing Committee on Planning and Environment has completed its report on the issues raised at the 1996 National Conference of Australian Parliamentary Works Committees, the Committee may send it to the Speaker or, in the absence of the Speaker, to the Deputy Speaker, who is authorised to give directions for its printing, circulation and publication; and

(2) the foregoing provisions of this resolution have effect notwithstanding anything contained in the standing orders.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Sitting suspended from 12.35 to 2.30 pm

QUESTIONS WITHOUT NOTICE

Budget Outcome Forecast

MR WHITECROSS: Mr Speaker, my question is to the Chief Minister and Treasurer. Yesterday on ABC radio Dr David Chessell, the senior partner of Access Economics, said:

It is disingenuous to say that the budget has been returned to surplus a year earlier than planned. It's not true, the reason being that there are over $100m of asset sales. And asset sales are just another form of borrowing.
