Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 4 Hansard (20 April) . . Page.. 1010 ..
MR STANHOPE (Leader of the Opposition): I wish to make a very short personal explanation.
MR DEPUTY SPEAKER: Proceed.
MR STANHOPE: The Deputy Chief Minister, during his speech just now on the matter of public importance, went to some lengths to insist that a question asked today by my colleague contained misinformation. I just wish to give the Deputy Chief Minister the opportunity to correct the fact that he just misled - - -
Mr Humphries: Mr Deputy Speaker, I take a point of order. If Mr Berry was misrepresented by my comments, Mr Berry has to take the personal explanation; Mr Stanhope cannot take it on his behalf.
MR DEPUTY SPEAKER: Yes, I think that is the procedure.
MR STANHOPE: I am sure that it is.
MR OSBORNE: I present Scrutiny Report No. 4 of 1999 of the Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety, performing the duties of a scrutiny of Bills and subordinate legislation committee. I ask for leave to make a brief statement on the report.
MR OSBORNE: Scrutiny Report No. 4 of 1999 contains the committee's comments on 11 Bills and one government response. I ask members to have a special look at the part of the report which deals with the Government's legislation in relation to the security arrangements for the Olympics. The legal adviser highlighted a number of concerns in relation to the legislation and I think all members would be well advised to have a particular look at that comment in this legislation. I commend the report to the Assembly.
MR HIRD (4.53): Mr Deputy Speaker, I present report No. 23 of the Standing Committee on Urban Services, entitled "Draft Variation to the Territory Plan No. 109: Residential Land Use Policies - Area Specific Policies No. B11 and No. B12 North Canberra and Appendix III.3 Urban Housing Code", together with a copy of extracts of the minutes of proceedings. This report was provided to the Speaker for circulation on Friday, 16 April 1999 pursuant to the resolution of appointment. I move:
That the report be noted.
