Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 05 Hansard (Thursday, 13 May 2021) . . Page.. 1510 ..

referred to the Commissioner for Standards. Therefore, when the first motion asked us to consider that, I was just signalling that intent. When the second motion comes forward for debate, that is what I wish to state.

MS BURCH (Brindabella) (5.11): Just in closing, I will respond very briefly to some of the comments by Mr Hanson but not to the colourful language. I have been very clear from the beginning that I think there are questions to answer in this and this is simply a referral motion. As I mentioned this morning, there remains a question for me, as Speaker and as a member, about whether this is in the scope of the Commissioner for Standards. To address that and to remove any such question—and I mentioned this morning that Mr Milligan has self-referred—I will say a little bit more when I get to the next motion, which I will need leave to do. With that, I will close, Mr Assistant Speaker.

Ms Lawder (Brindabella) (5.12): Mr Assistant Speaker, if I might seek clarification? We have notice No 1, Assembly business, and I have an unnamed motion in front of me. I am not certain which motion we are voting on.

MR ASSISTANT SPEAKER: We are currently debating Assembly business notice No 1. The motion that is circulating has not been moved yet. We are debating Assembly business notice No 1 on the notice paper. That is the question before us.

Question put:
