Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 6 Hansard (14 June) . . Page.. 1756 ..

MS TUCKER: It is not a completely different motion at all. So, for that reason, I had to reword that motion. A copy was given to Mr Berry's office this morning. I apologise if Mr Berry didn't understand. Maybe that was a problem in communication from my office. But the point is that we agreed to have a discussion about this issue of school buses which I thought the Labor Party wanted to have as well. But who knows!

MR KAINE: Mr Deputy Speaker, I seek leave to speak briefly.

Leave granted.

MR KAINE: I was aware that Ms Tucker wanted to bring something similar to this on today, and I have no objection to debating it. But can it not be debated after notice No 6? Surely Ms Tucker's objective will be satisfied as long as we debate this before we adjourn today. I don't see any necessity to debate it right at this second, but I don't mind debating it before we adjourn at the end of the day.

MR BERRY: I seek leave to speak briefly.

Leave granted.

MR BERRY: I have formed the same view as Mr Kaine. I am quite happy to debate this and give an undertaking that we will stay here until we finish it. I think we should wait until we have dealt with all the other matters up to and including No 6. I must admit that I was contacted today. I feel as thought I have probably let Ms Tucker down to some degree because I didn't pay proper attention to the matter. I'm quite content to see the suspension of standing orders occur a bit later, after we have finished all the other debates. I don't have any difficulty about doing it, but I just think it should happen at the end.

MR DEPUTY SPEAKER: I have only one motion in front of me. It refers to "forthwith". Ms Tucker may want leave to change that to "later this day".

Ms Tucker: It appears that the majority of the Assembly would like to do it later; so I seek leave to withdraw the motion. I will do it later.

Leave granted.

Motion, by leave, withdrawn.

Food (Amendment) Bill (No 3) 1998
