Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 7 Hansard (1 July) . . Page.. 2068 ..
Precedence to Executive Business
MR HUMPHRIES (Attorney-General, Minister for Justice and Community Safety and Minister Assisting the Treasurer) (5.18): I move:
That so much of the standing and temporary orders be suspended as would prevent precedence being given to the following Executive business orders of the day in sequential order following the consideration of order of the day No. 5 relating to the Gaming and Racing Control Bill 1998:
The order of the day relating to the Gaming Machine (Amendment) Bill (No. 2) 1999
The order of the day relating to the Payroll Tax (Amendment) Bill (No. 2) 1999.
I will speak to that briefly. That is to allow the Assembly to consider two Bills which were introduced this morning, as foreshadowed by the Government in discussions at the government business meeting earlier.
Question resolved in the affirmative, with the concurrence of an absolute majority.
MR QUINLAN (5.19): I seek leave to move the motion relating to the establishment of a select committee on appropriations - more precisely, amendments to appropriations - circulated in my name.
MR QUINLAN: I move:
(1) a Select Committee on Appropriations be appointed to examine the Appropriation (Bruce Stadium and CanDeliver Limited) Bill 1999 and any expenditure proposals contained in any amendments to the Appropriation Bill 1999-2000 and any related matter;
(2) the Committee be composed of:
(a) one Member to be nominated by the Government;
(b) two Members to be nominated by the Opposition;
