MR HUMPHRIES (Attorney-General, Minister for Justice and Community Safety and Minister Assisting the Treasurer) (4.54): Mr Speaker, I must say that I am quite flabbergasted at the reluctance of the Labor Party to put on the table a document which is so directly pertinent to these matters.

Mr Berry: Mr Speaker, I take a point of order. What is Mr Humphries speaking to?

MR HUMPHRIES: I am speaking to my motion. I have just had the standing orders suspended to move it.

MR SPEAKER: That is correct.

MR HUMPHRIES: Mr Speaker, I move:

That Mr Corbell table by close of business today the criteria of the ACT Branch of the Australian Labor Party for privatisation of public assets.
