Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 11 Hansard (13 December) . . Page.. 2956..


MR OSBORNE (11.37): Mr Speaker, we went through this last week.

Mr Berry: That is right, and we will be going through it again and again until you agree with it, or vote it down. Have the courage of your convictions. Vote for it or against it.

MR SPEAKER: Order! The house will decide that, Mr Berry.

MR OSBORNE: Mr Speaker, I agreed to the adjournment last week because I was prepared to give Mrs Carnell until next year to come through on these issues. She has given me an undertaking this morning that she will not sell Kippax Health Centre, and I am happy to wear that. If she is prepared to run the risk and go against the undertaking she has given me this morning, she suffers the consequences. The handover for Jindalee Nursing Home is set down for 28 February and we are back to debate this on 21 February. She knows my view on it, and that is something we can debate next year. We adjourned this matter last week, and I think that is where it should stay.

Question put:

That the motion (Mr Berry's) be agreed to.

Mr Berry	Mrs Carnell
Mr Connolly	Mr Cornwell
Ms Follett	Mr De Domenico
