Page.. 448..

MR GENTLEMAN (Brindabella—Minister for Planning and Land Management, Minister for Racing and Gaming and Minister for Workplace Safety and Industrial Relations) (4.24): I thank Mr Smyth for his comments, but I want to advise the Assembly that there are many operations that work across the territory and that work completely out of hours and, therefore, during what we would see as normal business hours would not be open. There are many operations across the territory that work within normal business hours and also out of hours. It is important to have the opportunity for those inspectors to go in and have a look at those records whilst the operation of the business is in process. I would not expect at all that inspectors would want to go into a business whilst it was closed or non-operational. They would be liaising, of course, with the business on those operations. I do ask that members support the amendment and clause 5 when it is amended.

Amendment agreed to.

Question put:

That clause 5, as amended, be agreed to.

The Assembly voted—

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

Noes 8 Mr Coe Mr Doszpot Mrs Dunne Mr Hanson Mrs Jones Ms Lawder Mr Smyth Mr Wall

Question so resolved in the affirmative.

Clause 5, as amended, agreed to.

Remainder of bill, by leave, taken as a whole and agreed to.

Bill, as amended, agreed to.


Motion (by Mr Gentleman) proposed:

That the Assembly do now adjourn.

Mr Brad Inglis

MR SMYTH (Brindabella) (4.29): I would like to draw members' attention to the young fellow sitting the gallery; I would like to introduce you all to Brad Inglis. I would like to rise today to formally acknowledge Canberra local Brad Inglis, who was recently picked up by the Boston Red Sox to join their minor league program. At only 18 years old, that is a pretty significant achievement. Congratulations.
