Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 04 Hansard (Tuesday, 20 June 1995) . . Page.. 964 ..


MR WHITECROSS: Mr De Domenico, let me finish my point. If, as Mr De Domenico argues, a future government brings forward legislation to privatise ACTEW, then this would resolve the problem of this provision. But I would rather be sure that we were going to have an inquiry before we ended up with a privatised body than take Mr De Domenico's word for it at half past 12 in the morning, when he has not explained to me, or to the house for that matter, how his explanation works and why the amendment is not necessary. So, I would support Ms Tucker’s amendment.

Question put:
