Question so resolved in the affirmative.

Amendment agreed to.

MR RATTENBURY (Molonglo) (9.07): Speaking very briefly in closure, I thank members and the government for their support of the motion. I think it is important that the ACT Assembly take a stand on the issue of whether Tralee be developed or not because of the implications it is going to have for Canberra. It is a real shame that the Liberal Party cannot take a position on this. It is a real shame that the opposition could not take a position on the matter being debated, but I guess that is something they will have to think about over time. I look forward to continued discussion on this.

Mrs Dunne: On a point of order. Madam Assistant Speaker, could I seek your guidance? We have just had a gag motion moved on this motion.

Mr Rattenbury: I’ve sat down, Vicki. Get over it. I’m finished.

Mrs Dunne: I can still seek the chair’s guidance on the appropriateness of having further discussion after we have moved a gag.

MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER: Mrs Dunne, it was a motion that the question be put. The question has been put and we are now continuing.

Mr Smyth: No, but he’s still speaking.

Mr Hanson: At the time that she stood up to make her point of order he was still speaking.

MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER: We are clear on the situation.

Mr Hanson: Are we clear?

MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER: We are clear. The motion was that the question be put. We put the question at the time, which was Mr Stanhope’s amendment. We have done that and we are now proceeding onwards. We have now had Mr Rattenbury’s closing remarks, so we are now voting on Mr Rattenbury’s motion, as amended. The question is that Mr Rattenbury’s motion, as amended, be agreed to.

Question put:

That Mr Rattenbury’s motion, as amended, be agreed to.
