Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 11 Hansard (24 September) . . Page.. 3171 ..

MR SPEAKER (continuing):

All papers and documents presented to the Assembly and not authorised for publication may be made available to members, and, with the permission of the Speaker, may be inspected by other persons or copies thereof or extracts therefrom may be made.

I have taken advice over the luncheon break, and I have decided that, in the absence of an order of the Assembly authorising the publication of the letter, I will not be authorising its publication beyond members of the Assembly.

MR HUMPHRIES (Leader of the Opposition): Can I make a short statement in relation to that matter, Mr Speaker.

MR SPEAKER: You will have to seek leave.

MR HUMPHRIES: I do seek leave.

Leave granted.

MR HUMPHRIES: Mr Speaker, in tabling the letter this morning, it was not my intention to permit publication of the document in a way that would attract privilege. Since I have already published the letter-the letter was provided to the media last night-that step would be useless. It was merely provided to the Assembly in order to inform the Assembly about the contents. Therefore, I accept the ruling you have made.
