Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2000 Week 8 Hansard (29 August) . . Page.. 2602..


Debate resumed from 11 May 2000, on motion by Mr Moore:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

MR WOOD (6.33): Mr Speaker, we are told that this bill is necessary because the blood bank is finding it difficult to get donors, and that is unfortunate. The requirements are becoming more stringent all the time, with new problems and new testing devices. It has been the custom that minors need a signed note from their parents before giving blood. I do not think that was too cumbersome, but in order to facilitate the pretty simple procedure of going along and giving blood-it is not a problematic procedure-the opposition agrees with the proposal.

MR MOORE (Minister for Health and Community Care) (6.33), in reply: I thank members for their support.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill agreed to in principle.

Leave granted to dispense with the detail stage.

Bill agreed to.


Chief Minister

MR MOORE (Minister for Health and Community Care) (6.34): I move:

That the Assembly do now adjourn.

Members may not be aware that today is an interesting anniversary for the Chief Minister. It is her 2000th day, or bimillennium, as Chief Minister. I congratulate her on that.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Assembly adjourned at 6.34 pm
