Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1997 Week 4 Hansard (6 May) . . Page.. 963..

(d) no panning along the Benches shall be permitted;

(e) close-up shots of Members' papers are not permitted; and

(f) camera positioning shall not be such as to interfere with the proceedings of the Assembly and any instruction from the Speaker or the Speaker's delegates will be observed;

(3) the use by any radio station or television network of any part of the recorded proceedings and excerpts in subsequent news, current affairs and documentary programs, provided that the reporting is fair and accurate and not for the purpose of satire or ridicule. Points of order and remarks withdrawn are not to be rebroadcast. The Assembly notes that in the use of excerpts and delayed broadcasting of proceedings qualified privilege only shall apply to broadcasters;

(4) access to the proceedings of the Assembly for the recording and broadcasting is subject to an understanding to observe and comply with the conditions;

(5) the taking of still photographs during the presentation of the Appropriation Bill 1997-98 today, Tuesday, 6 May 1997, and the use of such photographs in the print media generally.

Mr Speaker, this is essentially a replication of the motion that the Assembly agreed to a couple of months ago dealing with the legislation presented by Mr Moore on euthanasia. The only substantial variation from the motion then moved is that proceedings are authorised for recording by any television network which wishes to take part in the process, rather than a nominated television network. Otherwise, it is the same as the motion previously moved, and I commend it to the house.

Question resolved in the affirmative.


MRS CARNELL (Chief Minister and Minister for Health and Community Care) (10.35): I seek leave to present the Smoke-Free Areas (Enclosed Public Places) (Amendment) Bill 1997.

MRS CARNELL: I present the Smoke-Free Areas (Enclosed Public Places) (Amendment) Bill 1997, together with its explanatory memorandum.
