MR SPEAKER: Is it the wish of the Assembly to debate this order of the day concurrently with the Traffic (Amendment) Bill 1997? There being no objection, that course will be followed. I remind members that in debating order of the day No. 8 they may also address their remarks to order of the day No. 9.
MR MOORE (10.13): Mr Speaker, this legislation is about the taking of blood samples in certain circumstances. In rising to oppose the legislation, I think it is appropriate to the one hand, there is an argument about ensuring the safety of citizens associated with people who are drink-driving and about testing their blood after an accident. I think there are very good arguments on that side.
