Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1998 Week 2 Hansard (20 May) . . Page.. 381 ..
MR HUMPHRIES (continuing):
Incidentally, by accepting this amendment, we delete the very provision which the Labor Party has just voted to retain in the motion. I moved to delete the words "in place of the Commonwealth coat of arms". The Labor Party has just voted to retain that part of the motion. This, then, would have the effect of going back and deleting it. Mr Speaker, it makes no sense at all to support this amendment, for either of those reasons.
Motion agreed to.
MR HARGREAVES (11.58): Mr Speaker, I move the motion standing in my name on the notice paper, relating to a review of school bus services.
Mr Humphries: Are you sure that you want to?
MR HARGREAVES: Yes, I am.
MR SPEAKER: Proceed, Mr Hargreaves.
MR HARGREAVES: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I am not frightened at all, Mr Humphries. You do not frighten me. You may frighten children; but you do not frighten me. I move:
That this Assembly:
(1) recognises the urgent need for ACTION to review school bus services and supports the "back to drawing board" approach to bus services recently adopted in the trunk line review of other ACTION services;
(2) calls on the Government to include the consideration of bus routes, the constitution of the interagency advisory committee on bus services, the cost of bus fares, and the implication of traffic configurations around pick up and drop off points;
(3) that this review be concluded by the end of Term 4, 1998 for introduction in Term 1, 1999, and with widespread community consultation to be concluded by the end of Term 3, 1998.
