Leave of absence
MR SMYTH (Brindabella) (10.01): I move:
That leave of absence be granted to Mrs Jones until the first sitting in August due to maternity reasons.
I think we are all aware that maternity matters are pending.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
Motion (by Mr Smyth) agreed to:
That Mrs Jones be discharged from the:
(1) Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety until the first sitting day in August and Mr Hanson (Leader of the Opposition) be appointed in her place; and
(2) Standing Committee on Education, Training and Youth Affairs until the first sitting day in August and Mr Coe be appointed in her place.
Mr Smyth: Could I say thank you to the government for agreeing to consent to the pair. It has taken a weight off her mind; thanks very much for that consideration.
