Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 12 Hansard (21 November) . . Page.. 3951 ..

MR MOORE (continuing):

Mr Speaker, I think the committee would look at the Greens' attempted amendment here, no matter the outcome of the vote on this matter. The committee would certainly be taking those issues into account, where appropriate. That is entirely appropriate. Mr Speaker, this request was made by the chair of the Ainslie Residents Association, as I pointed out in my speech, and I think it is appropriate that we proceed. I certainly appreciate the comments that people have made here about the whole consultation process. I believe that the best way to deal with the issue is as set out in the original motion as put, rather than getting caught up with some of the issues that the Greens raised, which I do not think will enhance anything.

Ms Tucker and others have raised the issue of public housing. You cannot look at Ainslie, where roughly a third of it is public housing, without taking into account public housing issues. Of course they will be taken into account by the committee, and the whole consultation process will be taken into account. Mr Speaker, I believe that the best way to deal with this is as set out in the motion I put to the Assembly. Therefore, I will not be supporting either of the amendments.

Amendment (Ms Reilly's) to Ms Tucker's amendment negatived.
