NOES, 9 . . Page.. 960 ..

This is a basic service to the people of the ACT, and it is absolutely crucial that the people who have the broadest possible interest in making this organisation work properly - the people who are involved with low income earners, the people who are involved with the green movement, the people who are involved with industrial relations - are there at the very top influencing decisions in a preventive way rather than having to deal with the mess that single-minded profit-makers have made of many a company already in Australia and for which, across Australia, we are still paying the consequences. I would argue that, in most of the situations where these failures have ensued, it has been because of the exclusion of the diversity of thinking that is exactly embedded in this amendment that is being put before us today. I commend the amendment.

“Operation of section 13

1A. Section 13 applies as if the following subsections were added:

‘(6) The Chief Minister shall not give an authorisation under subsection (1) or a direction under subsection (3) the effect of which would be that a share would not be held on trust for the Territory unless an inquiry is held under the Inquiries Act 1991 as modified in accordance with subsection (7).
