Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 5 Hansard (5 May) . .
MR HANSON: In accordance with standing order 213A, I move:
That the Assembly order the production of all documents relating to the lease variation charge waiver at the former Brumbies site at Griffith.
MADAM SPEAKER: At Griffith? Is that "at Griffith"? I am sorry; I took off my glasses.
Mr Barr: What a farce!
MADAM SPEAKER: It is not a farce. And because I took my glasses off, Mr Barr—
Mr Barr: You are kidding, Madam Speaker.
MADAM SPEAKER: I warn you.
Mr Corbell: Point of order, Madam Speaker.
MADAM SPEAKER: Mr Corbell on a point of order?
Mr Corbell: Is this motion in order? It does not use any commonly recognised acronym in relation to this matter. Motions have to be in proper form, Madam Speaker. That is the standard form of this place—
MADAM SPEAKER: Yes, I can—
Mr Corbell: and I seek your ruling, Madam Speaker, on whether or not—
MADAM SPEAKER: Yes, okay. If you stop speaking, I can give you a ruling.
Mr Corbell: I am just asking you for a ruling, Madam Speaker, and you allowed me to take a point of order; so I am taking it.
MADAM SPEAKER: Okay.
Mr Corbell: Madam Speaker, is this motion in order?
MADAM SPEAKER: Yes. This motion is in order. Mr Hanson has moved the motion. The question is that the motion be agreed to. Mr Hanson.
MR HANSON: Thank you, Madam Speaker. "In accordance with" is an acronym well in use. I am sure you have heard it before. There is another acronym there which is LVC which stands for lease variation charge. I have also got MLA, which is member of the Legislative Assembly. Acronyms are used quite regularly in this place. ACT is the acronym for Australian Capital Territory.
Mr Barr: You are a j-o-k-e.
