Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 8 Hansard (26 June) . . Page.. 2242 ..
MS TUCKER (continuing):
As I said, I am looking forward to seeing, I hope today, the discrete review of east O'Malley. An understanding and knowledge have obviously been discretely arrived at without consultation taking place with the broader community, and maybe not involving the flora and fauna committee, who seem to be out of the loop in this as well. So basically what we have ended up with is a situation-
Mr Corbell: Why are you afraid of asking for a briefing?
MS TUCKER: You know that when Mr Corbell interjects a lot he is getting upset. The point is that what we have here is a situation where Labor in government is mimicking the Liberals when they were in government, and they will be condemned for that by the community.
That Ms Tucker's motion be agreed to.
The Assembly voted-
Question so resolved in the negative.
MR HARGREAVES(12.10): Mr Speaker, I move:

(1) recognises the strong endorsement given to the Stanhope Labor Government by the electorate of Brindabella at the 2001 Legislative Assembly election.
(2) notes the Government's commitment to deliver on the agenda it promised Brindabella residents at the election.
