Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1998 Week 5 Hansard (26 August) . . Page.. 1416 ..
MR HARGREAVES: Thank you very much, Madam Speaker! Through you, Mr Speaker, I would like the Chief Minister to listen to what I said. I did address my remarks through you. I do not adopt the discourtesy that the Chief Minister does in this chamber by speaking over everybody. Thank you very much for that reminder. Mr Speaker, it is possible to shave a little piece off a whole stack of pieces in this budget. It is possible for the Government to do it, and I think this Assembly ought to demand that they do so.

MR WOOD: Mr Osborne and Mr Rugendyke, I hope you do something constructive about this. I hope that you use your muscles. You have an onus now to do something and not be walked over as you have been so far.
Mr Moore: Do you remember how they used to run this same line to us?
MR WOOD: Mr Moore, you might do something too because I have not heard a word from you in all this debate. I have seen you out there before. I have seen you being a bit of an arts supporter, but not this time.
