Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2008 Week 9 Hansard (19 August) . . Page.. 3268..
MR STANHOPE: They would today oppose a piece of significant legislation—legislation that passes every test in relation to its capacity to deal with this particular issue.
Mr Smyth: Every test?
MR SPEAKER: I warn you, Mr Smyth. Another bleat out of either of you and I will name you.
MR STANHOPE: It passes every test. It is rigorous; it is well targeted. The Liberal Party could not bring itself to support the most significant advance we have seen in relation to a community's willingness to grasp this very difficult issue in dealing with this greatest challenge that the earth faces. It is an indictment of the Liberal Party. (Time expired.)
