Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1998 Week 4 Hansard (24 June) . . Page.. 1015 ..

MR MOORE (continuing):

What I am concerned about, Mr Speaker, is whether this legislation will achieve what it set out to achieve. It is just the same as when you were proposing to do it by a motion and I was saying to you, "No; a motion like this will not work". You have now discovered that a motion will not work, which is why you are putting legislation in. When it comes back in six months' time and you see that this has not achieved anything, I hope you will say to yourselves, "Well, damn; we have been incompetent".

Bill, as a whole, as amended, agreed to.

Question put:
