Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 14 Hansard (11 December) . . Page.. 4250..
Mr Cornwell: On a point of order, Mr Speaker: there is a question on notice relating to this matter. I do not know to what extent it might be covering some of Ms Tucker's statements or questions.
MR SPEAKER: Would you like to repeat your supplementary question? I have in front of me a question with notice from Mr Cornwell. The number is 360 and it is page 655.
Mr Corbell: Mr Speaker, I do not think the questions are in conflict. I would be happy to try to answer Ms Tucker's supplementary question if she repeats it-because I have forgotten part of it.
MR SPEAKER: The difficulty is that, if she repeats it and it is in conflict, I will rule it out.
MS TUCKER: I am sorry. What did you say?
MR SPEAKER: If your supplementary question anticipates this question, then it is out of order.
MS TUCKER: I am not sure. I have not had time to read the question-it is rather long. You can make a judgment.
MR SPEAKER: I will do my best.
MS TUCKER: Mr Speaker, I was interested to know why the government did not encourage the negotiations on the sale of the lease between another club and the Hungarian-Australian Club.
Mr Corbell: No, it does not conflict with the question, Mr Speaker.
MR SPEAKER: Part (1) of the question was:
Have you received any notification of any sort that another club was negotiating to purchase the Hungarian-Australian Club...?
I think that goes to part of the question you asked. Then it says:
(2) Why did you not wait to see the result of these negotiations...?
I think that goes to some of what Ms Tucker has asked. Then it says:
(3) How much was this club offering for the premises, as opposed to the amount offered by a developer...?
Ms Tucker, I think your points are covered.
MS TUCKER: May I speak to it?
MR SPEAKER: Yes.
