Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 04 Hansard (Tuesday, 23 March 2010) . . Page.. 1200 ..

Members may or may not be aware that, on Monday, the public accounts committee is hearing from the Auditor-General about this matter. We have received a letter, as Mr Seselja said, about this matter. Obviously, the PAC has not spoken about Mr Seselja’s statement and I do not know what it is. Without knowing that, my view would be that PAC is dealing with this matter. We are going to talk to the Auditor-General about it. That would seem to be the next move to make in this situation. I would think that is the appropriate thing to do. This is a matter that is before the public accounts committee. The public accounts committee is working on it. I think it would be appropriate to let that process continue.

Question put:

That Mr Seselja’s motion be agreed to.
