Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 7 Hansard (17 October) . . Page.. 1762 ..
MS FOLLETT (Leader of the Opposition): Mr Speaker, I ask for leave to make a quick personal explanation.
MS FOLLETT: Mr Speaker, in the course of that last debate, Mr Humphries was concerned that I may have been imputing improper motives to the Electoral Commissioner. That, of course, was not my intention. I would seek to explain by saying that in the only two cases of harassment outside polling booths that I am aware of the allegations were against Liberal Party members or workers. In at least the second case, I know that the Electoral Commissioner's view was that it was a matter that ought to be dealt with by the Liberal Party. As far as I am aware, the Liberal Party has not dealt with it and has certainly not apologised to the person who was offended.
Report on Draft Variation to the Territory Plan - Hughes
MR MOORE (5.18): Mr Speaker, I present Report No. 4 of the Standing Committee on Planning and Environment entitled "Draft Variation to the Territory Plan for Hughes section 28 block 10 part (Proposed Extension to St Andrew's Village for Aged Persons in Groom Street, Hughes)", together with the extracts from the minutes of proceedings, and I move:
That the report be noted.
Mr Speaker, this was probably one of the easiest jobs for the Standing Committee on Planning and Environment. There were no objections to the proposed extension. It makes very good sense. It was with delight that we recommended that it ought to proceed as quickly as possible.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
MR HUMPHRIES (Attorney-General and Minister for the Environment, Land and Planning): Mr Speaker, for the information of members, I present the approval of variation No. 50 to the Territory Plan for Hughes, section 28, block 10 part, pursuant to section 29 of the Land (Planning and Environment) Act 1991. In accordance with the provisions of this Act, this variation is tabled with the background papers, a copy of the summaries and reports, and a copy of any direction or report required.
