Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 8 Hansard (9 August) . . Page.. 2843 ..

MR BERRY (continuing):

about what I have said I hope they understand that there has to be a bit more sensitive approach taken to these sorts of things.

Government housing

Member's language

MR MOORE (Minister for Health, Housing and Community Services) (3.24 am), in reply: I will close the debate. Mr Speaker, I will respond now to Mr Berry. The police minister and I had a discussion as he was speaking and we will ensure that our senior officials discuss that matter. That kind of response is inappropriate. Whilst we are doing work at housing to try to help, we think it is appropriate that the Chief Police Officer and the head of housing discuss that matter and understand it. If you would like to provide us with specific details, Mr Berry, although that is not particularly necessary, it might be helpful.

There is one other matter, Mr Speaker, before I sit down. When Ms Tucker was speaking earlier on a motion that she had sprung on us I did make a comment as an aside. I regret saying what I did, Mr Speaker, and I withdrew the inappropriate language that I used as an aside.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Assembly adjourned at 3.26 am (Friday) until Tuesday, 21 August 2001, at 10.30 am
