Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 06 Hansard (Wednesday, 2 June 2021) . . Page.. 1641 ..
MR BARR: Let me point out that the substantive issue here that we need to address is the future policy regarding the Gungahlin town centre.
Mr Hanson interjecting—
MR BARR: Let us have the opportunity to debate that this afternoon and resolve the matter. The Assembly can resume its consideration of a matter to which it has so far devoted about 25 minutes. I think it is appropriate, given that we have the time available now, to conclude the debate on this motion. I commend the motion to suspend standing orders to the house.
Ms Cheyne: Madam Speaker, several times during the debate Mr Hanson has interjected, including 10 seconds ago, describing the parliamentary and governing agreement between ACT Labor and the ACT Greens as a “dirty deal”, and he should withdraw.
Mrs Jones: On the point of order, that was actually me.
Mr Hanson: Madam Speaker, on the point of order—
MADAM SPEAKER: Mr Hanson, sit down, please.
Mr Hanson: It is not unparliamentary.
MADAM SPEAKER: Please sit down. Given your honesty, I ask you to withdraw, Mrs Jones.
MRS JONES: I withdraw.
Question resolved in the affirmative, with the concurrence of an absolute majority.
