Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1998 Week 10 Hansard (26 November) . . Page.. 3085 ..
MS CARNELL (continuing):
Mr Speaker, as I said at the outset, this is an important document. I urge all members to examine it carefully, because these issues will have to be addressed regardless of whether the sale and franchise of ACTEW Corporation proceed or not. We are aiming to develop world-class legislation and, with the support of members and the input of the Canberra community, I am confident that we can do just that. This statement of regulatory intent is an important document. Mr Speaker, I am confident that, as this progresses, the legislation that comes out of this will ensure that the Canberra community is protected and it can be confident of service delivery regardless of who owns our electricity and water authority.
MR CORBELL (3.44): Mr Speaker, I would like to congratulate the Chief Minister. I understand that blood pressure was high on this document and I am glad to see that it has finally emerged. I move:
That the debate be adjourned.
