Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 13 Hansard (7 December) . . Page.. 3942 ..

MR MOORE (continuing):

two issues. The amendment of Mr Humphries handled that. I must say it is a fairly complicated set of words, but it handles it quite well. That is recognised by the scrutiny of Bills committee. Taking the extra step that Mr Stanhope proposes will create an impossible situation. We should not take that extra step if we are going to be reasonable in this legislation.

Question put:

That the amendment (Mr Stanhope's ) be agreed to.

The Assembly voted -

AYES, 8   	NOES, 9

Mr Berry  	Ms Carnell

Mr Quinlan  	Mr Humphries
Mr Rugendyke  	Mr Kaine
Mr Stanhope  	Mr Moore
Ms Tucker  	Mr Osborne
Mr Wood  	Mr Smyth

Question so resolved in the negative.

Amendment negatived.

Bill, as a whole, agreed to.

Bill agreed to.


Debate resumed from 25 November 1999, on motion by Mr Humphries:

That this Bill be agreed to in principle.

MR QUINLAN (10.39): Mr Speaker, the Opposition will be supporting this Bill generally. It creates a statutory authority and I think it is common sense that the Kingston Foreshore Development Authority be set up as a separate business unit. We do have high hopes for that new body and trust that it is somewhat of an exception to the Government's business record of the last few years. We would commend the Government on the parameters that they have set for the authority's functions: Prudent commercial principles, consistent with the social and economic needs of the Territory, in consultation with the residents, and socially responsible.
