Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 04 Hansard (Thursday, 22 April 2021) . . Page.. 1079 ..


MADAM SPEAKER: Resume your seat. There is a point of order.

Mr Braddock: I have been misrepresented, Madam Speaker. I can go back and check my records to see how many Gungahlin Community Council meetings I have attended, and I am happy to compare that with the record of the planning minister.

MADAM SPEAKER: I do not think there is a point of order. Please resume your seat.

Mrs Jones interjecting

MADAM SPEAKER: Mrs Jones, you are getting too enthusiastic.

MR GENTLEMAN: I was not able to attend the last meeting due to diary requirements. However, if I receive another invitation, I will certainly have a look at it.

MR BRADDOCK: There is an open invitation for you, Minister, to attend Gungahlin Community Council meetings. When would you be able to attend?

MR GENTLEMAN: I will have a look at that when I get an invitation from the council.

MR CAIN: Minister, as part of your journey through Gungahlin with Mr Braddock, I would invite you to journey with me through Belconnen. Will you commit to doing so, and come and visit the disused and poorly maintained ovals in west Belconnen in particular?

MR GENTLEMAN: Madam Speaker, I spent my teen years in Belconnen. I know it very well. I moved to Higgins in 1969, when it was the last suburb, before we saw the Holt construction. It was a fantastic place to go, and I enjoyed my time there. Every time I visit Belconnen, I do enjoy it.

Mrs Jones: A point of order.

MADAM SPEAKER: Please resume your seat. Mrs Jones?

Mrs Jones: Madam Speaker, the question was whether he will go with Mr Cain to Belconnen not whether he has lived in Belconnen. It is on relevance.

MADAM SPEAKER: There is no point of order, and I ask you please to stop your interjections.

Mrs Jones: Will you go with Mr Cain?

MADAM SPEAKER: Mrs Jones, I do not really want to warn you, but I shall soon. Mr Gentleman, do you want to continue?
