Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 7 Hansard (18 October) . . Page.. 1793 ..

MR KAINE (continuing):

I refute Ms Follett's suggestion that this place is different from anywhere else in Australia in that the Queen has no part in it. We are established by a statute passed by the Federal Parliament, which itself is subject to and acknowledges its allegiance to the Queen. To say that we are somehow so different that we are not a part of all of that is, of course, a factual and legal nonsense. However, Mr Humphries's amendment, together with that of Mr Osborne, removes my objection because that will allow me to do what I wish to do, just as Ms Follett desires to do what she wants to do.

Amendment (Mr Osborne's) agreed to.

Question put:
