Page.. 2442..


Standing orders—suspension

Motion (by Mr Gentleman) agreed to, with the concurrence of an absolute majority:

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent orders of the day Assembly business, relating to the Report of the Select Committee on Estimates 2016-2017 and the Government response, being called on and debated cognately with orders of the day Nos. 3 and 4, Executive business, Appropriation Bill 2016-2017 and Appropriation (Office of the Legislative Assembly) Bill 2016-2017.

Appropriation Bill 2016-2017

[Cognate bill:

Appropriation (Office of the Legislative Assembly) Bill 2016-2017

Cognate papers:

Estimates 2016-2017—Select Committee report

Estimates 2016-2017—Select Committee—government response]

Debate resumed from 9 June 2016.

Detail stage

Schedule 1—appropriations—proposed expenditure

MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER: I remind members that in debating order of the day No 3, executive business, they may also address their remarks to executive business order of the day No 4, and Assembly business orders of the day relating to the report of the Select Committee on Estimates 2016-2017 and the government response.

Standing order 180 sets down the order in which the bill will be considered in the detail stage. Any schedule expressing the services for which the appropriation is to be made must be considered before the clauses and, unless the Assembly otherwise orders, the schedules will be considered by proposed expenditure in the order shown.

With the concurrence of the Assembly, I am proposing that the Assembly consider schedule 1 by each part, consisting of net cost of outputs, capital injection and payments on behalf of territory. If this is the wish of the Assembly, schedule 1 will be considered by each part, consisting of net cost of outputs, capital injection and payments on behalf of territory, then the clauses prior to schedule 2 and then the title.

ACT Executive—Schedule, Part 1.1

MR HANSON (Molonglo—Leader of the Opposition) (11.11): At the outset I would like to thank those who have been involved in the estimates committee process—the

members of the committee but also, of course, an extensive number of government officials that came forward and answered questions, provided answers to questions taken on notice and so forth. Once again we have gone through what was a pretty rigorous process to look at the budget in detail.
