Rates and Land Tax Amendment Bill 2001

Debate resumed from 3 May 2001, on motion by Mr Humphries:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

MR QUINLAN (12.19 am): We will also support this bill. I would like to give my little speech about inequity, particularly with the fixed charge.

Mr Moore: Consider it done.

MR QUINLAN: Yes, I will consider it done. There has been a 60 or 70 per cent increase in that over the last four or five years. I refer you to the Hansard of this time last year and the year before.

MR HUMPHRIES (Chief Minister, Minister for Community Affairs and Treasurer) (12.19 am), in reply: I thank Mr Quinlan for his support for this bill. He can take it as read that I will give my speech about the $344 million operating loss. We are about equal on that front.

Mr Quinlan: Yes, righto. I don't know how that fits in. But, anyway, you can knock yourself out.

MR HUMPHRIES: It always fits in.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill agreed to in principle.

Leave granted to dispense with the detail stage.

Bill agreed to.
