Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 2 Hansard (1 March) . . Page.. 460 ..

MR WOOD (11.48): Mr Speaker, may I close the debate now?

MR SPEAKER: You may.

MR WOOD: Mr Moore's assessment of how the amendments will work is quite accurate; I agree with that. Mr Moore's amendments will wipe out my disallowance motion, it is as simple as that, with the ramifications that I explained in one speech and in a bit of another one. Therefore, I oppose Mr Moore's amendments. I would seek that he come back on another day with a small change to one aspect of what I am arguing about, just one small change, but let us follow the principles established by the select committee in a unanimous report and agree with my disallowance motion. It is about going back to the principles of that select committee report. If members want to follow those principles, they should not support Mr Moore's amendments; they should say no to those amendments.

Question put:

That Mr Moore's amendments be agreed to.
