Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2006 Week 12 Hansard (23 November) . . Page.. 3842..
MR MULCAHY (continuing):
but we do not see him coming out and defending the people of Molonglo. We do not see Mr Corbell defending the people of Molonglo. We do not even see Katy Gallagher in the chamber on this issue.
This is one of the three biggest issues that have hit my office since I was elected: the civil unions legislation, the dragway and the Griffith library. On the basis of the volume of letters, the Griffith library is emerging as the single largest issue on which people have made representations.
It is time for the government members for Molonglo to move out of their ministerial offices, talk to the people in Griffith and Narrabundah and listen to what they are saying, because those people are angry, and they are rightfully angry. The residents of the inner south are going to suffer because the Griffith library will close.
It being 45 minutes after the commencement of Assembly business, the debate was interrupted in accordance with standing order 77.
MR SMYTH (Brindabella) (11.43): I move pursuant to standing order 77:
That the time allotted to Assembly business be extended by 30 minutes.
The Assembly voted—
Question so resolved in the negative.
Resumption of debate made an order of the day for the next sitting.
Minister for the Territory and Municipal Services
Motion of censure
MR MULCAHY (Molonglo) (11.46): I seek leave to move a motion of censure in relation to the Minister for the Territory and Municipal Services.
MR MULCAHY: I move:
That the Minister for the Territory and Municipal Services be censured for his handling of the closure of the Griffith library.
