Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 2 Hansard (28 February) . . Page.. 422 ..

MR CORBELL (continuing):

I do not believe that those sorts of issues have been properly taken account of. Regardless of the process that the minister outlined, I think there are longer term implications for proposed lighting on residential or neighbourhood ovals which are located very close to homes. I think the minister needs to look again at the proposal.

Question put:

That Mr Corbell's motion be agreed to.

The Assembly voted-

	Ayes 8				Noes 9

Mr Berry	Mr Stanhope	Mrs Burke	Mr Moore
Mr Corbell	Ms Tucker	Mr Cornwell	Mr Osborne
Mr Hargreaves	Mr Wood		Mr Hird		Mr Smyth
Mr Quinlan			Mr Humphries	Mr Stefaniak
Mr Rugendyke			Mr Kaine
Question so resolved in the negative.

Payroll advertising-Australian Nursing Federation

MR BERRY (4.59): I move:

That this Assembly rejects the decision of the Government to refuse the payroll advertising proposed by the Australian Nursing Federation.

Mr Temporary Deputy Speaker, it should not be necessary to move this sort of motion. I submit that it would not be necessary to do so if it were not for the philosophical attitude of the government towards the union movement in the ACT. The need for this motion has arisen because of the government's sponsorship of advertising on pay cheques that are circulated throughout the ACT government workforce.

A range of conditions are applicable to non-government advertising in ACT government publications.

At 5.00 pm, in accordance with standing order 34, the debate was interrupted. The motion for the adjournment of the Assembly having been put and negatived, the debate was resumed.

MR BERRY: Mr Temporary Deputy Speaker, the conditions are as follows:

1. Potential non government advertisers, their products and their advertising material will be carefully vetted to ensure that the material is appropriate and there is no conflict with:

Government policies, programs or activities;

the Public Sector Management Act 1994, Financial Management Act 1996 or other relevant legislation eg EEO or anti-discrimination;
