Page.. 96..

MR HANSON: because we know you have got lots of money to do it with.

Question put:

That the motion be agreed to.

A division being called and the bells being rung—

Ms Burch: Can you have members actually repay taxpayer-funded money—

Mr Hanson: Good luck with that argument. Good luck with the whole argument, Joy. While you've got the pokies, you lot stink and you know it.

Mr Corbell: On a point of order, he knows that is unparliamentary. He should withdraw it.

MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER: The whole lot of you were bantering across the chamber the whole time, I must say. However, Mr Hanson, would you like to withdraw, please?

Mr Hanson: I will withdraw, Madam Assistant Speaker.

MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER: Thank you. Perhaps we will sit in silence while we are waiting for everyone to arrive.

The Assembly voted—

Ayes 8: Mr Coe Mr Doszpot Mrs Dunne Mr Hanson Mrs Jones Ms Lawder Mr Symth Mr Wall

Noes 9: Mr Barr Ms Berry Dr Bourke Ms Burch Mr Corbell Ms Fitzharris Mr Gentleman Ms Porter Mr Rattenbury

Question so resolved in the negative.

Judicial Commissions Amendment Bill 2014

Debate resumed from 27 November 2014, on motion by Mr Corbell:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

MR HANSON (Molonglo—Leader of the Opposition) (5.14): The opposition will support the Judicial Commissions Amendment Bill 2014 but with a number of cautions, and I will come to those shortly. This bill establishes a part-time judicial council to investigate low and medium-level complaints against the judiciary. It mirrors the system already in place in New South Wales. I note, too, from the report of the scrutiny committee that a similar system operates in New Zealand.
