Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 7 Hansard (19 June) . . Page.. 1897 ..

Mr Whitecross: Using Mrs Carnell's figures.

MR HUMPHRIES: They were your figures, Mr Berry. They were produced under you. We relied upon those figures. They were your figures. You can see now that they are wrong. Why do you not make a statement in the press to apologise to Mrs Carnell for having said that she was misleading the people? Will you make that statement? Mr Speaker, it is clear that there is one standard for those opposite when they are in opposition and a different standard for them when they are in government and there is a different standard for members of this side of the chamber. Frankly, it leaves this Government thinking that censure motions are not of any particular value at all in this place.

Amendment negatived.
