Question resolved in the affirmative.

Australian Capital Territory (Self-Government) Act 1988

Application of section 15

DR FOSKEY (Molonglo) (12.13): Mr Speaker, I seek leave to move a motion regarding my involvement in the debate on the Justice and Community Safety Legislation Amendment Bill 2005 (No 2).

Leave granted.

DR FOSKEY: I move:

That the Assembly:

(1) noting the provisions of section 15 of the Australian Capital Territory (Self-Government) Act 1988 and those of standing order 156 which provide that the Assembly may decide how those provisions may be applied;

(2) decides that, notwithstanding that Dr Foskey, MLA has a residential tenancies agreement with the ACT Government, it is in the public interest to allow Dr Foskey, MLA to participate in any future discussion, or vote on a question, in relation to the Justice and Community Safety Legislation Amendment Bill 2005 (No 2).

MR SPEAKER: Dr Foskey, would you like to speak to the motion?

DR FOSKEY: I have nothing to add. I will engage in the debate when my turn comes. I have already moved the motion. Would you like me to explain it?

MR SPEAKER: Members may not have the motion in front of them and they might like to hear from you.

DR FOSKEY: This motion notes that I have a tenancy agreement with the ACT Commissioner for Housing. It makes reference to section 15 of the Australian Capital Territory (Self-Government) Act 1988 and notes that under standing order 156 it is incumbent upon me to seek leave of the Assembly to speak on any matter that may involve residential tenancies. I intend to refer to that matter when I speak in the debate on the Justice and Community Safety Legislation Amendment Bill 2005 (No 2).

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Justice and Community Safety Legislation Amendment Bill 2005 (No 2)

Date resumed from 30 June 2005, on motion by Mr Stanhope:
