Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 8 Hansard (26 October) . . Page.. 2147..
MR OSBORNE (continuing):
reason I raised it today is that I am very aware that the current EBA runs out on 31 December and there is not a lot of time left. I am aware that the Minister for Industrial Relations has not yet met with the TLC and I would like to hope that he will do that shortly. Otherwise it will make my decision much easier.
That the motion (Mr Osborne's) be agreed to.
The Assembly voted -
AYES, 10 NOES, 7 Mrs Carnell Mr Berry Mr Cornwell Mr Connolly Mr De Domenico Ms Follett Mr Hird Mr Humphries Ms Horodny Ms McRae Mr Kaine Mr Whitecross Mr Moore Mr Wood Mr Osborne Mr Stefaniak Ms TuckerQuestion so resolved in the affirmative.
MR SPEAKER: Mr Humphries, would you like to make a personal explanation at this point?
Mr Humphries: I think I had best not, Mr Speaker.
MS McRAE: Mr Speaker, I seek leave to make a personal explanation under standing order 46.
MR SPEAKER: Certainly.
MS McRAE: Could I just follow up from an earlier debate? I was accused earlier of gatecrashing a meeting. I now seek leave to table two pieces of paper. One is the invitation that I received, which refers to a public meeting. The other piece of paper with the options and that came about the meeting says quite clearly, "The meeting will be advertised through all local schools and in the local media". That verifies my claim that it was a public meeting to which I was invited.
