Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 10 Hansard (5 September) . . Page.. 3198 ..

Motion (by Mr Kaine) proposed:

That the question be now put.

Mr Moore: I raise a point of order, Mr Speaker. I draw your attention to the standing order on the gag. Unfortunately, the number slips my mind. It allows you a discretion. I seek your protection. I had hardly started speaking.

Mr Kaine: The question has to be put without debate.

MR SPEAKER: Yes, indeed.

Ms McRae: On a point of order: The Speaker has the prerogative. Please exercise it.

MR SPEAKER: It is in my discretion. There is one small problem associated with Mr Moore's amendment; that is that he has omitted "6.30 pm this day" and substituted "6.30 am on the next day of sitting".

Mr Moore: No, Mr Speaker, that is not correct.

MR SPEAKER: You have amended it?

Mr Moore: Yes. Perhaps the Clerk will give you advice on this. I was quite specific about the date.

MR SPEAKER: I know, but the point is that if I accept the gag motion the opportunity may not be there for anything to be done about it - and I do accept the gag motion, Mr Moore.

Question put:
