Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 4 Hansard (21 April) . . Page.. 1102 ..

MR STEFANIAK (continuing):

I think on that basis, Mr Speaker, it would be best if this debate were adjourned until the next sitting. On that basis, I move:

That the debate be adjourned.

MR SPEAKER: You cannot. I need somebody else to move that, please.

Motion (by Mr Humphries ) proposed:

That the debate be adjourned.

Mr Berry: You cannot do it without dealing with the in-principle stage, surely.

MR SPEAKER: Pardon. You can move that the debate be adjourned at any time. It is a matter for the Assembly to decide whether or not the motion is agreed to.

Question put:

That the motion (Mr Humphries' ) be agreed to.

The bells being rung -

Mr Berry: This is only the in-principle stage.
