Ministerial Statement

MR CONNOLLY (Attorney-General, Minister for Housing and Community Services and Minister for Urban Services), by leave: Mr Deputy Speaker, I sought this leave in order to advise the house of developments in relation to the policing of the visit of US President Bush to Canberra that is imminent. I have spoken this afternoon with Senator Tate, who has advised the Senate that it is now the Commonwealth Government's view that as this is a national visit it will be paid out of the national component of the AFP, and the Commonwealth will bear the costs of this visit rather than the ACT. I consider this to be a significant achievement for the ACT and a significant victory for this Government. It is very pleasing that the Commonwealth has listened to our views and has changed its mind.


MS FOLLETT (Chief Minister and Treasurer) (4.31): Mr Deputy Speaker, I present the Appropriation (Amendment) Bill 1991. I move:

That this Bill be agreed to in principle.

This amendment Bill is related to the establishment of Totalcare Industries Ltd as a Territory owned corporation from 1 January 1992. The Bill adds a provision to the Appropriation Act to ensure that funds appropriated to the Department of Health to pay for services provided by Totalcare Industries can be paid to Totalcare Industries Ltd after 1 January 1992. This is an administrative amendment only. I now present the explanatory memorandum for this Bill.

Debate (on motion by Mr Kaine) adjourned.


Detail Stage

Clause 1

Debate resumed from 21 November 1991.

MRS NOLAN (4.33): Mr Deputy Speaker, this Bill, as I understand it, was held over with a view to it not proceeding until the planning legislation was in place. If I recall correctly, I made some comments very briefly when it was debated in the in-principle stage. As I understand it, it was left there until the planning legislation had passed. I have absolutely no problems with supporting this amendment Bill, and I commend it to the Assembly.
