Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2005 Week 4 Hansard (15 March) . . Page.. 994..


DR FOSKEY (continuing):

other circumstances where we are left with quite a bit of time where we were all expecting to be sitting in this house-we can move into private members' business. This of course indicates that we need to be prepared to do that. I am not at the moment prepared to contribute to whichever bit of private members' business came first, and I do like the opportunity to be prepared.

So in this sense, while I am supporting the suspension of standing orders, I am also saying that I would like us to actually, as Mr Corbell suggested, formally establish that as a practice of the Assembly so that we can, in future, move ahead that way.

Motion (by Mr Corbell ) put:
