Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2007 Week 5 Hansard (29 May) . . Page.. 1080..
MRS DUNNE (continuing):
This is not to say that members of the opposition are opposed to ethical behaviour—far from it. Although the Chief Minister previously thought that we should have respectful debate on a matter that he wanted to bring forward here about Rhodium, when it came to debating this matter of principle the Chief Minister could not be respectful; he could not have a respectful debate but had to start slinging off about how the opposition, because they had trouble with this amorphous definition, were by definition themselves unethical.
We all have our moral compass, and in this place there are probably 17 different moral compasses. We will all have different definitions of what is ethical behaviour. When 17 people in this place cannot agree on what ethical behaviour is, what guidance are we giving to our bureaucrats who make judgments about their colleagues and about businesses in this community?
That amendment No 1 be agreed to.
The Assembly voted—
Question so resolved in the negative.
Bill, as a whole, agreed to.
Bill agreed to.
