Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 8 Hansard (9 August) . . Page.. 2720..
MS TUCKER: Mr Rugendyke's proposal was to go west with a spur. Well, that makes a wonderful long road. I wish we could have seen the analysis of that one. Did the committee go into detail on the costs of that one? Yes, that would have been really interesting. I am not surprised that the people concerned thought that was not workable.
I do not know whether I am going to get support for this amendment because Mr Osborne has not spoken, but I know he promised to listen to the debate on the floor, and anyone who listened to this debate would have to support my amendment.
That Ms Tucker's amendment be agreed to.

Deputy Leader of the Opposition and Leader of the Opposition
MR HUMPHRIES (Chief Minister, Minister for Community Affairs and Treasurer): Mr Speaker, I ask for leave to move a motion circulated in my name regarding the censure of Mr Quinlan and Mr Stanhope.
Leave not granted.
Suspension of standing and temporary orders
MR HUMPHRIES (Chief Minister, Minister for Community Affairs and Treasurer) (5.42): I move:
That so much of the standing and temporary orders be suspended as would prevent Mr Humphries from moving the motion circulated in his name regarding the censure of Mr Quinlan and Mr Stanhope.
Mr Speaker, there was some debate earlier today about some words used by Mr Quinlan in this place yesterday. Those words are a fairly serious reflection, I argue, on a member of this place. They are sexist and they are unbecoming. They are words which need to be taken up and addressed by this chamber.
