Legislative Assembly Secretariat—submission to Remuneration Tribunal
MR SPEAKER: Yesterday Mr Mulcahy asked me a question in relation to submissions from the secretariat to the Remuneration Tribunal. I am aware that a submission was made by the Clerk to the Remuneration Tribunal in relation to the Clerk's salary. Should members require access to that submission they should approach the Clerk.
MR MULCAHY (Molonglo): I wish to correct a matter under standing order 46, misrepresentation.
MR SPEAKER: Mr Mulcahy.
MR MULCAHY: Thank you. Yesterday afternoon in debate, it was indicated by Mr Smyth, supported by Mrs Dunne, that a bill that I introduced was plagiarising something that the Liberal Party had in fact developed. I seek leave to table a submission I produced on 17 September 2007, prepared by me, where I recommended the repeal of this bill.
MR MULCAHY: I table the following paper:
Utilities (Network Facilities Tax) Repeal Bill 2007—Copy of Liberal Party Room submission, dated 17 September 2007.
The following petition was lodged for presentation, by Ms Porter, from 29 residents:
To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory.
