Mr Moore: I take a point of order, Mr Speaker. I believe that the only people to have spoken to the motion that the paper be noted are Ms Follett and Mr Jensen. I believe that members ought to have an opportunity to speak, should they wish to. They all should have an opportunity to speak to that motion.

MR SPEAKER: That is absolutely correct, Mr Moore. If somebody had jumped to their feet, they could have; but, as no-one did, I would like now to - - -

Mr Moore: I was just making the point, Mr Speaker, that you had not given anybody an opportunity to do so.

MR SPEAKER: That is not correct, Mr Moore. The opportunity was there if somebody had stood. Somebody like you who knows the standing orders backwards appreciated that they had the chance to speak if they wished to. The question now is: That the motion moved by Mr Kaine be agreed to.

Question resolved in the affirmative.


MR COLLAERY (Attorney-General): Mr Speaker, I claim to have been misrepresented and I seek leave to make a short personal explanation.

MR SPEAKER: Please proceed.

MR COLLAERY: Mr Wood, uncharacteristically, started his speech by making a personal attack on me. He said that I had said nothing about peace. That is entirely incorrect. My words, as members will recall, were that we all support peaceful and humanitarian initiatives or motives, or words to that effect. In fact, I endorse the comments of my leader which embrace those other considerations.


Report on Water Fluoridation

MR WOOD (5.23): Mr Speaker, pursuant to order, I present the report of the Standing Committee on Social Policy's inquiry into water fluoridation in the ACT, together with extracts of minutes of proceedings. I ask leave to move a motion authorising the publication of the report and the extracts of the minutes of proceedings.

Leave granted.
