Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1998 Week 10 Hansard (25 November) . . Page.. 2877 ..
MR QUINLAN: Mr Speaker, I seek clarification under standing order 47.
MR SPEAKER: Standing order 46, I think. Proceed.
MR QUINLAN: The Chief Minister apparently misunderstood my question about the Cosmos. I did not at any time mention the demise of the Cosmos. Rather, I was inquiring as to whether forecasts were generally in need of revision, given the circumstances of the Cosmos. I find it very worrying that the immediate demise of the Cosmos would spring to the Chief Minister's mind so immediately.
MR SPEAKER: Pursuant to subsection 8(4) of the Legislative Assembly (Broadcasting of Proceedings) Act 1997, I present an authorisation to broadcast given to a number of television and radio networks in relation to proceedings of the Assembly for today, 25 November 1998, concerning debate on the Health Regulation (Maternal Health Information) Bill 1998 and the authorisation to broadcast vision given to a number of television networks in relation to public hearings of two committees - the Select Committee on Gambling on 30 November 1998 and the Standing Committee on Education on the work for the dole project in primary schools on 1 and 3 December 1998.
