Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 13 Hansard (4 December) . . Page.. 4399 ..

Mr Moore: On a point of order, Mr Speaker: I also ask you to clarify standing order 61. Can somebody take a point of order on somebody who is already in the middle of taking a point of order?

Mr Berry: Mr Speaker, let me read to you standing order 61. Mr Moore obviously has not taken the time to look at it. He is not very good on standing orders. It reads:

A Member may not interrupt another Member whilst speaking unless: -

that is a very important word -

(a) to call attention to a point of order - - -


Mr Moore: On a point of order, Mr Speaker - - -


Mr Moore: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Just to illustrate how ridiculous Mr Berry's notion is, I took a point of order.

MR SPEAKER: Thank you. I would draw everybody's attention to that comment.


MS FOLLETT: Mr Speaker, I seek leave to make a statement under standing order 46.

MR SPEAKER: Proceed.

MS FOLLETT: Thank you, Mr Speaker. During question time, in response to the first question to Mrs Carnell as Treasurer, I consider that the Treasurer gave the impression that previous governments had not produced financial reports. I want to make it very clear that, in government, Labor did produce quarterly financial statements. They were made available to all members. That was through a requirement of the law at the time. Mr Kaine did the same thing when he was Treasurer; so I will make the statement on his behalf as well. I will go further, Mr Speaker, and say that the quarterly reports that were produced by both me as Treasurer and Mr Kaine as Treasurer are, in fact, no more and certainly no less than what the current Treasurer has done so far.
