Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 7 Hansard (19 June) . . Page.. 2059 ..

MR QUINLAN: I move my amendments Nos 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 13 [see schedule 4 at page 2131]. I do not need to speak to them other than to say that those are the ones that I think relate to the three months and four months. I have excluded those that attempted to change the time limit from 45 days to 30. I commend my amendments to the house.

MR RUGENDYKE (4.22): I listened to what Mr Quinlan said and I have discussed these amendments with Treasury officials. I agree with the conclusion that has been reached by the Treasurer and the opposition spokesman on treasury matters. I see the benefit of four reports compared to 12. I also believe that the public servants involved need sufficient time to prepare an appropriate analysis to go with the reports. To limit them to 30 days would have been unnecessarily difficult. I am pleased that agreement has been reached to keep it at 45 days. I agree with the amendments as decided by both sides of the chamber.

Amendments agreed to.

Bill, as a whole, as amended, agreed to.

Appropriation Bill 2001-2002

Detail stage

Debate resumed from 3 May 2001.

MR SPEAKER: Standing order 180 sets down the order in which this bill will be considered; that is, in the detail stage any schedule expressing the services for which the appropriation is to be made must be considered before the clauses and, unless the Assembly otherwise orders, the schedules will be considered by proposed expenditure in the order shown. With the concurrence of the Assembly, I am proposing that the Assembly consider schedule 1 by each part, consisting of net cost of outputs, capital injection, and payments on behalf of the territory. Is that the wish of the Assembly? It is. That being so, schedule 1 will be considered by each part, consisting of net costs of outputs, capital injections, and payments on behalf of the territory, then the clauses prior to schedule 2 and the title.

Schedule 1-appropriations

Proposed expenditure-part 1-Legislative Assembly Secretariat, $4,168,000 (net cost of outputs), and $3,621,000 (payments on behalf of the territory), totalling $7,789,000.

MR BERRY (4.26): Mr Speaker, may I seek your guidance? Some of us will have assumed that there will be a cognate debate.

MR SPEAKER: That was closed.
