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.
That the amendment (Mr Stanhope's ) be agreed to.
The Assembly voted -
AYES, 8 NOES, 9 Mr Berry Ms Carnell Mr Corbell Mr Cornwell Mr Hargreaves Mr Hird Mr Quinlan Mr Humphries Mr Rugendyke Mr Kaine Mr Stanhope Mr Moore Ms Tucker Mr Osborne Mr Wood Mr Smyth Mr StefaniakQuestion so resolved in the negative.
Bill, as a whole, agreed to.
Bill agreed to.
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.
