Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 8 Hansard (9 August) . .
It makes me reflect on the extraordinary moment that we had in estimates last year when the opposition questioned Mr Barr about the impact of late night parking in Civic. What does this mean? What does this mean for low paid retail workers, hospitality workers, families and people for whom parking is a significant portion of their take-home pay? What did Mr Barr say? That it was the difference between sparkling and still water when you are having a $100 dinner. This is the bloke that cannot deliver a surplus. This is the bloke that thinks that this is all about sparkling and still water when you are having a $100 dinner. This is a bloke that loves his tax reform that is hurting Canberra families and retirees across this town. And this is the bloke that is running a baseless scare campaign that has been debunked by experts.
Not only will we not support this element in the budget; you simply cannot believe it.
Debate interrupted in accordance with standing order 74 and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for a later hour.
Sitting suspended from 12.31 to 2.30 pm.
