Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 9 Hansard (23 November) . . Page.. 2539 ..

MR BERRY (3.41 am): The Labor Party will not be supporting Mr Moore's motion. Clearly, an extension of what Mr Moore has moved would end up with the whole of the Treasurer's Advance being quarantined. It flies in the face of the proposition that we carried earlier.

MR MOORE (3.42 am), in reply: We have had a long debate. There would be a high level of hypocrisy and duplicity by any Liberal Party members who vote against this motion, when it was the Liberals who set the precedent in 1993. The motion was put by you, Mr Speaker. Of course, we know the position of the Labor Party.

Question put:

That the motion (Mr Moore's) be agreed to.

The Assembly voted -

AYES, 4	 	NOES, 13
