Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1993 Week 08 Hansard (Thursday, 19 August 1993) . . Page.. 2505 ..


The committee felt that a certain je ne sais quoi was required on the Legal Affairs Committee, and we all know that Mrs Grassby has je ne sais quoi coming out of her ears. I hope therefore that the transfer of Mrs Grassby onto the committee will assist us greatly in proceeding with our work at a great pace.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

PLANNING, DEVELOPMENT AND INFRASTRUCTURE -
STANDING COMMITTEE

Report on Draft Variation to the Territory Plan

Debate resumed from 20 May 1993, on motion by Mr Lamont:

That the report be noted.

MADAM SPEAKER: Mr Lamont, do you wish to speak to this? You will be closing the debate.

MR LAMONT (11.01), in reply: I do understand that, Madam Speaker. This variation was tabled in the Assembly by the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Committee during the last sitting period. The Minister has formally tabled the draft variation, and the expiration of the disallowance period occurs next Thursday. I presumed that it was, as a matter of course, deferred. I would have preferred to see the matter dealt with prior to the expiration of the disallowance period, and that is why I am raising it now, as a matter of personal explanation, as opposed to actually debating the motion. I note also that Mrs Carnell has returned.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

EXECUTIVE BUSINESS - PRECEDENCE

Motion (by Mr Berry) agreed to:

That executive business be called on forthwith.

MOTOR TRAFFIC (AMENDMENT) BILL 1993 [NO. 2]

Debate resumed from 1 April 1993, on motion by Mr Connolly:

That this Bill be agreed to in principle.

MADAM SPEAKER: Is it the wish of the Assembly to debate this order of the day concurrently with the Magistrates Court (Amendment) Bill (No. 2) 1993, the Traffic (Amendment) Bill 1993 and the Motor Traffic (Alcohol and Drugs) (Amendment) Bill (No. 2) 1993? If there is no objection, that course will be followed. I remind members that in debating order of the day No. 1 they may also address their remarks to orders of the day Nos 2, 3 and 4.
