Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 07 Hansard (Thursday, 2 August 2018) . . Page.. 2627 ..
MS CHEYNE (Ginninderra) (12.21): I move the amendment being circulated at least with my signature if not also now in my name. I move:
Omit all words after “That”, substitute:
“(1) the Government Procurement (Secure Local Jobs) Amendment Bill 2018 be referred to the Standing Committee on Economic Development and Tourism for inquiry and report, pursuant to standing order 174;
(2) the Standing Committee on Economic Development and Tourism report back to the Assembly this inquiry by no later than the end of September 2018; and
(3) that Standing Committee on Economic Development and Tourism may table its report into this inquiry when the Assembly is not sitting.”.
MADAM SPEAKER: I have checked with the Clerk about whether the name needs to be formal. It has been signed, so it is accepted by the Clerk and by the Assembly—
Mr Hanson: You do not need her name on it?
MADAM SPEAKER: It is in Ms Cheyne’s name because it is her signature. That is the advice I have. If I am wrong on that, I will come back and inform the Assembly. What we have in front of us now is an amendment to Mr Wall’s motion, and the amendment is in Ms Cheyne’s name.
MS CHEYNE: This has been agreed to by all parties, Madam Speaker. It makes more sense to go to EDD rather than PAC and, as we heard from your advice before, no later than the end of September 2018 seems reasonable and gives us the necessary flexibility. I commend my amendment to the chamber.
MR HANSON: The opposition will be supporting this. I am chair of that committee. I cannot wait.
MADAM SPEAKER: We all look forward to that, Mr Hanson.
Amendment agreed to.
Original question, as amended, agreed to.
Sitting suspended from 12.23 to 2.30 pm.
MR BARR: Madam Speaker, I advise of ministerial arrangements for today in Minister Fitzharris’s absence. The same as yesterday, Minister Rattenbury will take questions on health, Minister Gentleman—although it is not his birthday today—on transport and city services, and I will take questions on higher education, training and research.
