the financial details of the business case then surely they will not release all the financial details of the contract. This is why it is crucial that this bill is before the Assembly.

Madam Speaker, let me conclude by saying that if Labor or the Greens have ideas on how to improve my proposed legislation by way of an amendment to this bill, I am more than willing to discuss this. It is not my intention to force companies to give away trade secrets or intellectual property. Quite frankly, I do not see why such material needs to be in the light rail contract in the first place. However, if it is going to be included then I am open to negotiation regarding this legislation.

The bill is firmly targeted at getting the financial ramifications for this project. I am happy to work with members in the Assembly to ensure that this outcome is delivered in my proposed legislation. I look forward to working with members.

Debate (on motion by Mr Barr) adjourned to the next sitting.
