Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1998 Week 8 Hansard (27 October) . . Page.. 2283 ..
MR HUMPHRIES: Mr Speaker, on 25 August, during question time, Mr Wood asked the Chief Minister some questions relating to the wine industry network. The answers were inadvertently not tabled at the time. I ask for leave to have the answers to those questions incorporated in Hansard.
Document incorporated at Appendix 1.
MR SPEAKER: For the information of members, I present the following papers:
Nuclear Testing - Condemnation of actions of the Pakistan Government - Copy of letter from Kate Carnell, Chief Minister to The Hon John Howard MP, Prime Minister conveying the Assembly's resolution of 23 September 1998 relating to the recent nuclear testing by Pakistan, dated 8 October 1998.
Legislative Assembly (Broadcasting of Proceedings) Act - Authority to broadcast proceedings, pursuant to subsection 8(4), concerning:
Debate on the motion of 24 September 1998 relating to ECOWISE, dated 24 September 1998;
Public hearings of the Select Committee on Estimates 1998-99 in the weeks beginning 19 October 1998, 2 and 9 November 1998, dated 16 October 1998; and
Vision of the public hearing of the Standing Committee on Urban Services into the environment protection legislation for Friday, 16 October, dated 16 October 1998.
Mr Corbell: I have a question, Mr Speaker. You have tabled a letter from the Chief Minister to the Prime Minister in relation to an Assembly resolution. Did the Assembly require the Chief Minister to write that letter? If the Assembly did not, surely it would have been more appropriate for you, as Speaker, to convey that message.
MR SPEAKER: Yes, I will clarify that, Mr Corbell. The motion concluded with this request: "Further, the Assembly urges the Chief Minister to write to the Prime Minister".
