Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 05 Hansard (Thursday, 24 August 1995) . . Page.. 1399 ..


cover broader publication to members of the public. I think it was always the intention of the Assembly to do so. I think it is right and proper for a report of the committee of the Assembly to be made available to the Canberra community, once the Speaker has authorised its release, when the Assembly is not sitting. The purpose of this motion is to remove any ambiguity, Mr Speaker, and I commend it to members.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

MS McRAE (11.02): Mr Speaker, I want to take this opportunity, firstly, to thank all the groups who bothered to give their time to this committee. It was a fishing exercise really - an unusual event for a committee, because in normal instances people come around a very fixed term of reference with some sort of question, a burning question, to answer, argue to and fro the particular issue, present their evidence and then come up with some conclusion. In this instance the committee undertook a different process to allow groups to come and make us aware of their concerns. This, of course, met with some criticism from the press, but I believe that the exercise was extremely useful.
