Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 05 Hansard (Thursday, 24 August 1995) . . Page.. 1398 ..


MS TUCKER (10.55), in reply: It is great to see everyone work so well together on some issues anyway. I understand that there has been a problem in the process with our submission to the Remuneration Tribunal. I accept that maybe that is something we could have done. We were not aware of that.

I put this motion on the notice paper in order to alter the usual motion in relation to the printing and circulation of committee reports out of session. We want to add the words “and publication”. The reason for this addition is to make plain the Assembly's intention that when it authorises a committee to circulate its report out of session, subject, of course, to your approval, Mr Speaker, the circulation should be to the wider community and not just to members of this house. We have had a couple of instances in the not too distant past when one possible interpretation was that our motion did not
