Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 02 Hansard (Tuesday, 9 February 2021) . . Page.. 287 ..


The alteration to the sitting pattern for this week has been agreed across the chamber, and I thank Mr Hanson and Mr Braddock for working with my colleague Ms Orr on this. The change does not alter the number of private members’ motions that would have occurred and is consistent with the number normally listed by the Standing Committee on Administration and Procedure for debate prior to COVID-19.

The motion before us enables the Assembly to adjourn after the presentation of the appropriation bill by the Treasurer. This is a longstanding practice of this place, to enable the opposition to begin preparing its budget reply, which will be presented on Thursday afternoon. To achieve this longstanding practice, the opposition will have its private members’ motion debated this morning, with the second motion that would otherwise have occurred today being listed for debate tomorrow morning. I commend the motion to the Assembly.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
