Appropriation (Office of the Legislative Assembly) Bill 2022-2023 (No 2)

Debate resumed from 9 February 2023, on motion by Mr Barr:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

MR HANSON (Murrumbidgee) (5.47): Madam Speaker, we will support this bill.

Members interjecting—

MR HANSON: You probably have the numbers. The Canberra Liberals would like to place on record our thanks and appreciation to the hardworking staff of the Office of the Legislative Assembly. I am sure we would all agree that you keep this place, and keep me and indeed keep all of us, on track. I would also like to acknowledge the work of the Integrity Commissioner, the Electoral Commissioner and the Auditor-General. These officers play a crucial role in supporting ongoing efforts to guarantee good governance. It is a tough ask, but that is what we are all here for, on behalf of the people of the ACT, and we will support this bill.
