Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 10 Hansard (6 December) . . Page.. 2751..


Mrs Carnell: It has not even been circulated.

MR BERRY: I could very quickly deal with that by seeking leave to strike out some words and replace them with others.

MR SPEAKER: You cannot do that because the amendments are Mrs Carnell's. There are foreshadowed amendments. I would suggest to members that they get their act together.

MR BERRY: Mrs Carnell has yet to come to the realisation that once you have been granted leave to do things in this place you can do them. From Labor's standpoint, we want to see the motion passed. We do not want to see it delayed, because there are issues that could be dealt with by Mrs Carnell. It would not cramp her style that much, but it would send a strong message to her about - - -

MR SPEAKER: Order! The member's time has expired.

MR BERRY: I seek an extension, Mr Speaker.

Leave not granted.

MR BERRY: I do not need it, do I? I have leave.

Mr Moore: No, you do not have leave about time. You had leave to address a particular point.

MR SPEAKER: I am sorry; you do not have leave on time. Your time has expired.

MR BERRY: I would urge members to support the motion and get the amendments set in concrete.

Motion (by Mr Moore) put:
