Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2013 Week 6 Hansard (8 May) . . Page.. 1737..
Mr Rattenbury has paid quite a bit of lip-service to in the past. When it comes down to the crunch—this happens every time—the third-party insurance for the government by the Greens is there in Green bundles.
I await with interest the agreement the Chief Minister comes to on behalf of Canberra schools. I note her assurances that she supports all schools in the ACT. However, those assurances fly in the face of her comments yesterday, from which she has not resiled:
... the base amount in non-government schools would be discounted by parents' capacity to pay non-government school fees.
That is not what Gonski was proposing, and the Chief Minister is well aware of that. I seek the support of this Assembly for my motion.
That Ms Gallagher's amendments be agreed to.
The Assembly voted—
Ayes 9: Mr Barr Ms Berry Dr Bourke Ms Burch Mr Corbell Ms Gallagher Mr Gentleman Ms Porter Mr Rattenbury
Noes 8: Mr Coe Mr Doszpot Mrs Dunne Mr Hanson Mrs Jones Mr Seselja Mr Smyth Mr Wall
Question so resolved in the affirmative
Amendments agreed to.
Motion, as amended, agreed to.
Parking—Erindale group centre
MR SESELJA (Brindabella) (3.43): I move:
That this Assembly:
(a) the parking challenges surrounding the Erindale Group Centre;
(b) the significant additional pressure put on this area on Sunday mornings when the Capital Edge Community Church holds their main service;
(c) the concerns raised by Erindale Group Centre business owners and the Capital Edge Community Church about the lack of parking; and
