Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2007 Week 1 Hansard (28 February) . . Page.. 105..

MR STEFANIAK (continuing):

there, independently, sifting through the evidence—her job. She finds fact, and that I think is what people out there would believe.

Mr Speaker, the debate is in the hands of the Assembly. The Chief Minister will not, obviously, accept responsibility for this. Obviously it is a matter for numbers, but it should really be a matter for responsibility and accountability. We are elected to represent this community and stand up for the community when it is required. Obviously, I do not think that is going to happen today. This debate will be on party lines, and I think that is a shame.

Amendment negatived.

Question put:

That Mr Stefaniak's motion be agreed to.

The following petition was lodged for presentation, by Mr Berry, from 24 residents:

Belconnen golf course

To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory.

This petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that: a developer proposes to significantly expand the residential area of the housing estate on the present golf course site and further that the 1993 preliminary assessment proposed no future housing.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to: oppose any further residential expansion at the Belconnen Golf Course.

The Clerk having announced that the terms of the petition would be recorded in Hansard and a copy referred to the appropriate minister, the petition was received.
