Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 1 Hansard (11 February) . .
The government should not be changing the rules. If the government are going to say that people can go by a certain scheme, they should stick to it, instead of having this revolving door policy which always favours them. It always favours the government. This is wrong in every way—the process and the policy—and that is why it should be disallowed.
MR GENTLEMAN (Brindabella—Minister for Planning and Land Management, Minister for Racing and Gaming and Minister for Workplace Safety and Industrial Relations) (12.26), by leave: Mr Coe has shown us on the notice paper the date of the lodgement of his motion, 19 November. Notice No 3 says:
Notice given 19 November 2015. Disallowable Instrument will be deemed to have been disallowed unless disposed of within 4 sitting days, including today.
That means we have 19 November, 9 February, 10 February, and 11 February.
MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER: Order members! It is Mr Gentleman's turn to speak.
MR GENTLEMAN: Unless disposed of within four sitting days. That would mean that if it is not dealt with—
Mr Wall: I think you are misleading the Assembly.
MR GENTLEMAN: then it would be disallowed. My office, as I said—
Mr Coe: You are a joke.
Mr Wall: You are an absolute joke.
Ms Berry: A point of order, Madam Assistant Speaker.
MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER: A point of order, Ms Berry.
Ms Berry: I refer to the interjections over there describing the minister as a joke, and also before that, implying that he was misleading the Assembly.
Mr Smyth: Under what standing order?
Ms Berry: 39.
Mrs Dunne: On the point of order, Madam Assistant Speaker—
MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER: On the point of order, Mrs Dunne.
