Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 13 Hansard (17 November) . . Page.. 5566..
December, but I am quite positive that those discussions will go well. I know that we will have something in place before the end of the year. Certainly, there will be something passed in the December session.
I thank and acknowledge Mr Barr for the input on this debate. I encourage and urge the Canberra Liberals to go away and look at the research. I urge them to have another look at the legislation and consider changing their position on such an important matter as problem gambling and the impact it has on so many Canberra families.
That the bill be agreed to in principle.
The Assembly voted—
Ayes 11: Mr Barr Ms Bresnan Ms Burch Mr Corbell Ms Gallagher Mr Hargreaves Ms Hunter Ms Le Couteur Ms Porter Mr Rattenbury Mr Stanhope
Noes 6: Mr Coe Mr Doszpot Mrs Dunne Mr Hanson Mr Seselja Mr Smyth
Question so resolved in the affirmative.
Debate (on motion by Mr Barr) adjourned to the next sitting.
MR SESELJA (Molonglo—Leader of the Opposition) (4:09): I move:
That this Assembly:
(1) notes that:
(a) the government released the proposed Technical Amendment (2010 31) to the Territory Plan in October 2010;
(b) the amendment will significantly change the density of the Gungahlin suburbs of Casey and Crace by:
(i) increasing the number of dwellings in Casey from 1940 to 2600;
(ii) increasing the number of dwellings in Crace from 1200 to 1800;
(c) this increase in dwellings will come at the cost of important open space, including ovals;
