Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 14 Hansard (10 December) . . Page.. 4184..
MS DUNDAS (continuing):
agree that we should throw the baby out with the bathwater and get rid of the council altogether.
I recognise that the council is a novel idea and is unlike any other statutory body or committee in other legislation. I also recognise that a truly independent expert body may have some useful input into Canberra's planning process. The operation of the council will need to be closely reviewed, along with the rest of the act, in a few years, with close attention to its relationship with other bodies and whether the advice it provides covers all disciplines we believe should be represented on such a body.
Amendments agreed to.
Debate (on motion by Ms Gallagher ) adjourned to the next sitting.
Motion (by Mr Wood ) agreed to:
That the Assembly do now adjourn.
The Assembly adjourned at 10.04 pm.
