Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 7 Hansard (26 June) . . Page.. 2546..


MS DUNDAS

(continuing):

Amendment agreed to.

MRS DUNNE

(11.27): Mr Speaker, I move the amendment circulated in my name.

MR SPEAKER

: You will need leave.

MRS DUNNE

: I seek leave to move the amendment circulated in my name.

Leave granted.

MRS DUNNE

: I move the amendment circulated in my name:

After the word "table", insert "before the Assembly adjourns today (26 June 2003)".

MR CORBELL

(Minister for Health and Minister for Planning) (11.27): The government has no difficulty with this amendment, Mr Speaker, but I do want to draw to members' attention that, in tabling the document, as is provided for in Mrs Dunne's substantive motion, it is a case of then deciding whether or not that document should be authorised for publication or made available more broadly.

I wonder whether members might consider adjourning this to a later hour this day, to have some discussions about the final form of a motion. Somebody that hasn't spoken can move that it be adjourned to a later hour this day.

Debate (on motion by Mr Stefaniak ) adjourned to a later hour.

Road Transport (General) Act 1999

Disallowable instrument 2003-79-motion for disallowance

MS DUNDAS

(11.29): I move:

That Disallowable Instrument 2003-79, made pursuant to the Road Transport (General) Act 1999 be disallowed.

By moving a disallowance to the fee regulation, I do not wish for all registration to remain at current levels, nor do I think registration of vehicles should be free. Rather, I am calling on the government to adjust the concession scheme so that the surcharge
