Mr Connolly: On the point of order: I think it is a question of what “reflect” means. If you look to the green book, simply saying that we would have liked to have a select committee is not reflecting. To go into an extended diatribe about the motives of members and why they voted that way is a reflection. If, Mr Speaker, you would care to look at that for future debates, you may be able to provide better guidance for us.

MR SPEAKER: In the interests of expediting this long debate, I shall be happy to take that on board, Mr Connolly.

MR WHITECROSS: Mr Speaker, I think I have made the substantial point I wanted to make, which is that we would welcome the opportunity for the Minister to offer us more time to consider this matter. If, as I suspect, the Minister is not offering us more time to consider it, this is better than nothing. We will continue to consider this in the future. Maybe we will introduce another Bill in private members business and fix it up.

MR MOORE (11.47): Mr Speaker, I am delighted to support this amendment. As I indicated earlier when I put an amendment of my own, I think it enhances ACTEW and will help guide the new corporatised body in the sort of thinking they have been coming towards for some years. I think it is a credit to Ms Horodny and Ms Tucker that they have put this amendment tonight.

Amendment agreed to.

MS HORODNY (11.48): I move:

Page 8, line 11, insert the following clause:
