Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 3 Hansard (6 March) . . Page.. 682 ..

MS DUNDAS (continuing):

Now is the time to be active, to stand up and to strongly argue for women's rights internationally as well as in national and local spheres. This is at the core of my motion. I commend my motion to the Assembly and thank all speakers for taking the time to participate today.

Mr Stefaniak: Mr Speaker, I wonder whether I can move that we vote on paragraphs (1), (2) and (3) of the motion seriatim.

MR SPEAKER: You can do that, Mr Stefaniak, but I remind you that the Assembly has already decided upon paragraph (3). You would be asking the Assembly to reconsider that.

Mr Stefaniak: I would just ask the Assembly to consider each paragraph seriatim, with no more speeches. Vote on paragraph (1), then paragraph (2), then paragraph (3). That happens quite often.

MR SPEAKER: You can move that way.

Motion (by Mr Stefaniak ) put:

That the question be divided.
