Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 2 Hansard (21 February) . . Page.. 463..
In a way, this attempt to suspend standing orders today is a reflection on the vote from last week. The vote from last week said that there will be a process. That process has been agreed to by the Assembly, but we have a Chief Minister who does not like the process that she set up.
MR SPEAKER: The time for the debate has now expired.
That so much of the standing and temporary orders be suspended as would prevent Ms Gallagher (Chief Minister) from making a statement concerning the statement made by the Leader of the Opposition last week.
The Assembly voted—
Ayes 7: Mr Barr Dr Bourke Ms Burch Mr Corbell Ms Gallagher Mr Hargreaves Ms Porter
Noes 10: Ms Bresnan Mr Coe Mr Doszpot Mrs Dunne Mr Hanson Ms Hunter Ms Le Couteur Mr Rattenbury Ms Seselja Mr Smyth
Question so resolved in the negative.
The following petition was lodged for presentation, by Dr Bourke, from 20 residents:
Roads—parking—petition No 128
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 the parking at Curves Gungahlin is inadequate.
Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to rectify the situation by supplying more medium term parking.
The Clerk having announced that the terms of the petition would be recorded in Hansard and a copy referred to the appropriate minister for response pursuant to standing order 100, the petition was received.
