Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 8 Hansard (8 August) . . Page.. 2570 ..

MR SPEAKER: No, I am not denying you the right to speak on any issue. I have put the question that the motion be put. I think all members of the Assembly are well aware of what the motion is about.

Mr Berry: No you don't, because I have not said a word on it.

Mr Moore: On a point of order, Mr Speaker: we have already passed the closure motion and now it is time to put the suspension of standing orders motion without further discussion. That is what the standing orders demand.

MR SPEAKER: That is correct. Thank you.

Mr Kaine: Mr Speaker, on Mr Moore's motion: I have to say that I am concerned that the government is applying the gag here and is refusing to allow Mr Berry to state his case. I think it is unacceptable. They are bullyboy tactics.

MR SPEAKER: Order! The fact is that you cannot debate this matter.
