Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2006 Week 4 Hansard (4 May) . . Page.. 1235..


MR SMYTH (continuing):

worry about that! There will be a little red star over there when we come in in the morning. The supreme soviet of the ACT has finally arrived—the workers paradise is here—because what we are doing is nobbling an election of the Assembly. We are nobbling the election of a committee chair of the Assembly, and I believe we are violating standing order 225.

MR SMYTH (Brindabella—Leader of the Opposition) (4.22): I seek leave to move a further amendment to the motion. It is just procedural. The motion at paragraph 2 (c) says that nominations should be with the Speaker by 4.00 pm today. It is a simple amendment to change 4.00 pm to 5.00 pm today.

Leave granted.

MR SMYTH: I move:

Paragraph (2), omit "4 p.m.", substitute "5 p.m.".
