Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 3 Hansard (27 March) . . Page.. 690 ..

MR OSBORNE: It was not very often, and it was a long time ago. I would suggest that not many people could consume much more than they do in the early hours of the morning. I thank everyone for their input, and I hope that over the next few months, as we go down the path of setting up this trial, the debate will continue to be conducted in this way. I thank the Greens for their input. We perhaps had a crossing of communication lines over the last couple of days, and I apologise if any of that was my fault; but I think it was a case of both sides being a little in the wrong. I apologise for "juvenile", as long as you will withdraw "simplistic". I thank the members who supported me.
