Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 07 Hansard (Tuesday, 29 June 2010) . . Page.. 2817 ..


Mr Smyth: No; she can go first.

MR ASSISTANT SPEAKER: Because you are the same height and I cannot work it out.

Mrs Dunne: Can I seek your advice, Mr Assistant Speaker?

MR ASSISTANT SPEAKER: Yes, certainly, Mrs Dunne.

Mrs Dunne: Was the thing that Mr Stanhope tabled the whole document?

Mr Stanhope: The whole document I quoted.

MR ASSISTANT SPEAKER: My understanding, Mrs Dunne, is that it was in satisfaction of the motion that was put before. It was the truth, the whole truth and nothing but. Please resume your seat. Mr Smyth?

Mr Smyth: Going to your ruling, Mr Assistant Speaker, could you read paragraph 13.20—which, of course, modifies the interpretation of paragraph 13.19—and give us your wisdom?

MR ASSISTANT SPEAKER: The short answer to your question is no, I have not got it in front of me. I will, though, get it and read it to you, since you are having trouble reading it.

Mr Smyth: No, I have read it.

MR ASSISTANT SPEAKER: You have got it? Mr Smyth, I invite you to stand up and share it with us and save us a little bit of time.

Mr Smyth: No, I have read it.

MR ASSISTANT SPEAKER: Just save us a bit of time.

Mr Smyth: I am seeking your interpretation, Mr Assistant Speaker. It is a perfectly reasonable request. I notice the parody in the tone in your voice, but perhaps you might read 13.20 and give us your wisdom.

Mr Stanhope: On the point of order, just so that we get some context in this, I noticed Mr Smyth reading from his computer. Could I move, consistent with that, that Mr Smyth table his computer? If so, I will—

Mr Smyth: On the point of order, note that I do not touch the screen, Mr Stanhope—my computer is blank. It has just come back; it is locked out. I did not read from my computer.

MR ASSISTANT SPEAKER: Members, order!

Mr Smyth: In fact, I read from paragraph 13.20 of the Companion.
