Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 7 Hansard (21 June) . . Page.. 2407 ..

Suspension of standing and temporary orders

MR HUMPHRIES (Chief Minister, Minister for Community Affairs and Treasurer) (9.42): I move:

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would enable a vote to be taken on the question-That this Bill be agreed to.

The motion is simply to ensure that, since support for the budget has been such an issue lately, the record shows who has supported the budget and who has not.

MR BERRY (9.43): There is no need for the standing orders be suspended. It is quite obvious that there are certain aspects of this bill that no sensible person would support, but in the end the budget is going to be supported by the chamber. This is merely a time-wasting, smart alec response from the Chief Minister.

Question put:

That the motion be agreed to.

The Assembly voted-

	Ayes 10  				Noes 6

 Mrs Burke  	Mr Osborne  		Mr Berry  	Mr Wood

Question so resolved in the affirmative.

Question put:

That this bill be agreed to.
