Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 8 Hansard (8 August) . . Page.. 2569..
Mr Berry: Mr Speaker, while we are in the mood for incorporating documents in Hansard, can I seek leave to incorporate an advertisement for senior policy advisers for the ACT government; and another advertisement for a position with the Sports and Corporate Resource Division. In light of the minister-
Mr Hird: On a point of order, Mr Speaker: in accordance with standing orders, a member may seek leave to have tabled documents referred to by another member. The Chief Minister did not refer to Mr Berry's documents.
MR SPEAKER: I am sorry but people are taking shots at each other across this chamber and I am not going to be part of it. The fact is that if the Assembly wishes and it is feasible to have Mr Berry's document incorporated in Hansard, we should try to do so. But I have to ask the question: is leave granted?
Leave not granted.
Suspension of standing and temporary orders
MR BERRY (2.54): Mr Speaker, I move:
That so much of the standing and temporary orders be suspended as would prevent Mr Berry from incorporating two documents into Hansard.
Question (by Mr Moore ) proposed:
That the question be now put.
Mr Wood: You can't do that.
Mr Moore: I just did.
Mr Berry: Mr Speaker, you don't have to do that. You ought to hear the argument.
MR SPEAKER: Just a moment. Leave has been refused to incorporate. We now have a situation where Mr Berry has moved that so much of standing orders be suspended as would allow incorporation. Mr Moore then moved that the question on that question be put.
Mr Moore: Because we have already heard Mr Berry speak on it.
MR SPEAKER: Mr Moore, I am upholding your point.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
Mr Berry: Mr Speaker, on a point of order: you are denying me the right to speak on this issue.
