Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 11 Hansard (Wednesday, 20 October 2010) . . Page.. 4796 ..

amendments 1 and 2 do add context. I could be pedantic and amend “La Nina” to put a tilde over the second “n”, but we will not worry about that. I hope we can pronounce it correctly.

I am happy there is broad agreement that there should be more information about what triggers changes in water restrictions. I am not going to quibble over the words—whether it is my version or Mr Rattenbury’s version. I am quite happy to support those amendments as they stand.

These are three separate amendments; so is it the case that we can vote on them separately, Madam Assistant Speaker?

MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER: I thought they were moved together.

Mr Corbell: We can divide them.

MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER: If the wish of the Assembly is to split them, we can do so, but I believe Mr Rattenbury actually moved them in one lot; so the Assembly needs to order that the motion be divided.

Ordered that the question be divided.

MR RATTENBURY (Molonglo) (752): Just as a clarification, Madam Assistant Speaker, I believe I did actually make a small error before. My amendment No 2 is in fact designed to replace Mr Corbell’s paragraph (2), not to be an additional paragraph. So I did suggest before it would be paragraph (1A). It would in fact be paragraph (2). It is a substitution, not an additional paragraph. I clarify that for members.

Mrs Dunne: I would be happy to support it if it was paragraph (1A), but not so much if it was paragraph (2).

MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER: Okay, so where was—

MR RATTENBURY: It actually repeats a lot of what is in paragraph (2).

Mrs Dunne: So you want it to be 2?


Mrs Dunne: Okay.

MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER: As the motion has been divided, we will now deal with it amendment by amendment.

Mr Rattenbury’s amendment No 1 agreed to.

Mr Rattenbury’s amendment No 2 negatived.

Mr Rattenbury’s amendment No 3 agreed to.
