Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1997 Week 8 Hansard (26 August) . . Page.. 2463..


MR SPEAKER: You claim that you did not make the statement.

Mr Berry: I did not. I never - - -

MR SPEAKER: Thank you.

Mr Berry: It is just outrageous. I never made such a statement - - -

MRS LITTLEWOOD: Yes, you did; under your breath.

MR SPEAKER: Order! Mr Berry has said that he did not make the statement and he has asked for a withdrawal.

MRS LITTLEWOOD: He did make the statement. I will check Hansard. I know I heard it.

Mr Berry: No, you will not - - -

Ms McRae: No, no. Check first.

Mr Berry: The fact of the matter is that I never made that statement. I would not make such a statement, and it is outrageous of Mrs Littlewood to try to recreate history in that form. I require her to withdraw immediately.

MR SPEAKER: Would you withdraw, please, Mrs Littlewood.

MRS LITTLEWOOD: I will withdraw and check Hansard.

MR SPEAKER: Yes, that is perfectly in order. There is nothing wrong with that.

MS REILLY: I seek leave to make a statement under standing order 46.

MR SPEAKER: Yes.

MS REILLY: In answer to a question, Mr Stefaniak discussed certain matters about housing. I would like to correct a couple of statements that he made. I would not like to suggest that he was misleading in any way, but I would like to correct him. He said that I made a statement about the housing list being over 4,000. I would like to quote from a press release of 13 August 1997. It states:

I am sure the more than 3,000 people on ACT public housing waiting lists would like to hear the Governments explain their irresponsible decision to cut $25m out of public housing.

I talked about more than 3,000 people being on waiting lists. I would like you to correct the statement that I was making statements about it being over 4,000. Would you like that to be tabled?

Leave granted.
