Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 6 Hansard (13 June) . . Page.. 1653..


MR QUINLAN (continuing):

buses. Why did not you people write a paragraph and submit it? Why did you not put something across to the committee?

Mr Stanhope: Why didn't you do some work?

MR QUINLAN: As I said, it is work, unfortunately. I will close now by sharing with everybody else, I guess, in the disappointment in this process, because the statement at the back is blatantly untrue. I just happen to have received, poked under my door, a copy of the dissenting report, which could not be tabled today because it was beyond-

Mr Wood: Out of order.

MR QUINLAN: Out of order and beyond the submission date of 8 June. And I want to compliment Mr Hird, as I have in the past, and Mrs Burke, on some of the insightful content within. The little dissertation on the asset test and the working capital ratios et cetera shows an understanding-a deep understanding-that I had not, to this point, given you credit for. And I must, in fact, recognise, again in Mr Hird's case, his capacity to submit to writing so well arguments of a quite complex nature that he does not appear to able to match when on his feet in this place. I will close by congratulating Mr Hird and Mrs Burke on the insight and well chosen language of their dissenting report, and I commend the report to the house.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
