Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 13 Hansard (Thursday, 27 November 2014) . . Page.. 4165 ..


Legislative Assembly

Sitting pattern 2014

MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Minister for the Environment and Minister for Capital Metro) (11.06): I move:

That:

(1) the resolution of the Assembly of 28 November 2013 be amended by inserting “December 4”; and

(2) the sitting scheduled for 4 December 2014 commence at 9am and debate on the matters listed below conclude at 12.30pm and on that day the Assembly will consider the Appropriation (Loose-fill Asbestos Insulation Eradication) Bill 2014-15, and the report from the Standing Committee on Public Accounts on its inquiry on the bill.

As members are now aware, it is proposed, through this motion, for the Assembly to be recalled for the period 9 am to 12.30 pm on 4 December this year to allow the Assembly to consider the Appropriation (Loose-fill Asbestos Insulation Eradication) Bill and the associated report on the bill from the Standing Committee on Public Accounts on its inquiry into this bill which is now underway.

This is clearly an important matter, a matter of great significance to hundreds and hundreds of Canberra families, and a matter, of course, that requires an expeditious resolution. Therefore the government is proposing that the Assembly be recalled on 4 December to specifically debate this bill, and I encourage members to lend their support to this amendment to the sitting calendar for that purpose.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
