Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 14 Hansard (12 December) . . Page.. 4852 ..

MRS CARNELL (continuing):

Mr Speaker, from a Government perspective, we are happy to support Mr Moore on this occasion and to spend the break determining the rules under which this will operate. Our view, again, would be that other people in this Assembly would not have advisers if the Government does not have advisers, but I think we should set out the rules for this for the future.

MS HORODNY (5.12): Mr Speaker, I seek to adjourn this debate so that we can get the process right. I move:

That the debate be adjourned.

We can come back after dinner. Members have agreed already to take a two-hour break.

MR SPEAKER: I beg your pardon? The Chair is not aware of any of this. You can either move - - -

Mr Berry: She cannot speak to it. She has moved to adjourn the debate.

MR SPEAKER: That is exactly right. Thank you, Mr Berry. I was about to make the point that you cannot debate a motion to adjourn the debate. The question is: That the debate be adjourned.

A vote having been called for and the bells having been rung -

Mr Moore: I raise a point of order, Mr Speaker. Could you clarify for me at what time Mr Osborne returns to the Assembly?

MR SPEAKER: No, I cannot, at the moment. I will advise you in due course. Not now, however.

Question put:

That the debate be adjourned.
