Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 9 Hansard (31 August) . . Page.. 2572 ..

Ms Carnell: Sorry. That means that Mr Quinlan did not give you all the papers.

MR STANHOPE: The latest document we have on this is a two-page summary. Of course, it downgraded the expected crowd by 20,000. The latest document on this downgraded the crowd assumptions by 20,000, with no explanation. The first document received, the one the Chief Minister refers to and the subject of the briefing I had, expected a crowd of 70,000. The draft summary, the last document provided to us, downgraded the crowd by 50,000.

Mr Humphries: Mr Speaker, I have to take the same point of order. We are still talking about something other than the V8s and the hospice and this Bill.

MR SPEAKER: Please, I must ask for relevance.

MR STANHOPE: Mr Speaker, that is simply spurious. I am talking about the expected crowds for the V8 car race. Is that relevant to this debate or not?


MR STANHOPE: Then you should not have upheld the point of order, Mr Speaker, with respect.

Mr Humphries: He did not.

MR STANHOPE: He did. We are talking here about the crowds for the V8 car race. We have had two sets of figures delivered over the last two weeks. Two weeks ago the expected crowd for the V8 car race was 70,000.

Mr Humphries: That is not true, Jon.

MR STANHOPE: Is that not true, Chief Minister?

Ms Carnell: No. There are not two sets of figures. But you just keep it up, because that sort of negativity will lose you another election.

MR SPEAKER: Order! We are having a debate, not a discussion across the table.

MR STANHOPE: Chief Minister, there are two sets of figures.

Ms Carnell: No, there are not.

MR STANHOPE: Goodness me. There are two sets of figures, Chief Minister.

Mr Moore: Do not tell me this is yet another error, Jon. You are always making errors.
