Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 14 Hansard (12 December) . . Page.. 4917 ..
MS McRAE (continuing):
I think that putting it into legislation at the moment at 75 per cent, with the knowledge that we have a full-level study going on, satisfies both the needs of the Labor Party, because we will pursue our policy of 100 per cent betterment, and the needs of the Government to ensure that, for the moment, they have at least some policy in place to try to stimulate business. But everybody involved in the issues knows that in 18 months' time, when the sunset clause cuts in, we expect to be able to do a full and thorough evaluation of the work that has been done, a review of the impact of this particular change versus the level of betterment that has been collected at other times - a review which is never easy to do because you are always comparing apples and pears; you never really have a clear picture of just what each development is about.
Given all of that, we will not be supporting these particular amendments of Mr Moore's. We are foreshadowing that we will support the sunset clause and, therefore, we will support the Government's amendment.
That the amendment (Mr Moore's) be agreed to.
