Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 7 Hansard (3 August) . .

So we will agree with everything to 2(a) and oppose 2(b). If we can split, it would be great.
Ordered that the amendment be divided.
MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: We will take the matters from 1(e) through to 2(a) as the first proposed amendment, and then we will take 2(b) as a second proposed amendment. The question is that 1(e) through to 2(a) inclusive be agreed to.
Paragraphs (1)(e) to (2)(a) agreed to.
MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: The next question is that amendment 2(b) be agreed to.
That paragraph 2(b) of Ms Berry's amendment be agreed to.
