Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 7 Hansard (2 July) . . Page.. 2130 ..

MR QUINLAN (continuing):

they have not been associated with the appropriate statement in a schedule. So, Mr Speaker, I think this Assembly, at this point in time, may find itself unable, in fact, to pass these amendments. I think that will do me for the moment.

MS CARNELL (Chief Minister and Treasurer) (12.55): I rise to answer some of Mr Quinlan's questions. He asks about the difference between the $21.412005m and the $22.383241m.

Mr Quinlan: No, you were wrong. Ha, ha!

MS CARNELL: Mr Quinlan, if you add that figure - - -

Mr Moore: I rise to a point of order, Mr Speaker. The geese are cackling here. They are getting a sensible explanation for the questions they ask.

MS CARNELL: Mr Speaker, I was just trying, for the information of members. I know that Mr Rugendyke is listening, at least. If you take - - -

Mr Quinlan: When he is not being distracted by you lot.

Mr Moore: Mr Speaker, I think he should be named - 202(e).

MR SPEAKER: Settle down. We will see how chirpy you are at 5.00 am tomorrow.
