MRS CARNELL (Chief Minister): Pursuant to standing order 128, I fix a later hour for moving the motion standing in my name on the notice paper relating to faunal and floral emblems for the Territory.


Debate resumed from 18 February 1997, on motion by Mr Humphries:

That this Bill be agreed to in principle.

MR WOOD (5.57): Mr Speaker, there are two quite separate matters contained in the Bill before us. I think it would have been better if we had considered those separately; but they are lumped together in the one Bill, so that is how we have to discuss them. I indicate, first of all, that, in relation to the extension of the trial period for liquor trading hours, the Opposition will be opposing that. In relation to the tabletop dancing, we would seek to adjourn the debate as we are not yet on top of that issue.

On the first matter, the debate at the time indicated that this trial was for summer. Summer finishes tomorrow. The Opposition believes that the Government and others should hold to their commitments, which were quite simple: There would be a period of trial and a reporting date. That is what you said you would do, so I believe you should do it. It is quite clear that all the data has been collected; the major work has been done.
