Question resolved in the affirmative.
Standing and temporary orders—suspension
Motion (by Mr Corbell) agreed to, with the concurrence of an absolute majority:
That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent order of the day No 7, Assembly business—Report of the Select Committee on Estimates 2011-2012 and the Government response to the Select Committee on Estimates, to be called on and debated cognately with order of the day No 3, Executive business—Appropriation Bill 2011-2012.

Proposed expenditure—Part 1.1—Legislative Assembly Secretariat—$7,163,000 (net cost of outputs), $233,000 (capital injection) and $5,713,000 (payments on behalf of the territory), totalling $13,109,000.
MR SMYTH (Brindabella) (4.40): And so the debate begins in proper for the budget for the 2011-2012 year. The Treasurer has circulated some amendments to the schedule.
