Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 11 Hansard (19 October) . . Page.. 3272..


MS CARNELL: Mr Speaker, I would hope that that was not a comment about a public servant.

MR SPEAKER: Chief Minister, you have answered the question about the figures.

MS CARNELL: Mr Speaker, I would suggest that the supplementary question is out of order in that it has an innuendo. In fact, it probably contravenes about three different standing orders.

MR SPEAKER: It came in four parts, as I recall, one of which had been answered. Another one certainly contained an innuendo.

In 1996 there were 213 security cameras operating in Canberra in 21 public locations. As at the beginning of this month, there are now over 366 cameras operating in 35 locations, with an undisclosed number operating at the Road User Services building in Dickson. This
