Sub judice rule
Statement by Deputy Speaker
MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Members, before we go on to Assembly business, I wish to make a brief statement in relation to a matter raised earlier this week. Mr Seselja sought the Speaker's ruling in relation to the Speaker's comments in the debate on the motion of grave concern on Tuesday, 27 March. The Speaker asked me to consider this matter, as for him to do it would involve a conflict of interest. I sought advice from the Clerk in relation to the matter. After considering the Clerk's advice, I consider that continuing resolution No 10 in relation to sub judice has been adhered to.
ACT Supermarket Competition Policy—Select Committee
MS LE COUTEUR (Molonglo) (11.30): I move:
That the resolution of the Assembly of 22 September 2011 relating to the referral of the ACT Supermarket Competition Policy to a select committee be amended by omitting the words "last sitting week in April 2012"and substituting "last sitting day in June 2012".
I really have nothing more to say than what is in the motion—that the resolution of the Assembly of 22 September 2011 relating to the referral of the ACT supermarket competition policy to a select committee be amended by omitting the "last sitting week in April 2012"and substituting "last sitting day in June 2012". We will not get it finished in April, I am afraid, so this is necessary.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
