Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 1 Hansard (20 February) . . Page.. 292 ..

MS TUCKER (continuing):

I am also very concerned that the focus of Mr Corbell's presentation was on the club and it not being appropriate to have a club. His election commitment was for a club or for a related purpose. It is important to stress that this land is part of the Narrabundah social infrastructure. This land is important to the people of Narrabundah. This process has been appalling. I am so disappointed that both major parties do not acknowledge that. I am particularly disappointed with the new Labor government, which came into office saying that they would bring in a fairer and clearer planning process. This is not only not fair and not clear; it looks dodgy.


Question put:

That Ms Tucker's motion be agreed to.

The Assembly voted-

 Ayes 3  		Noes 14

 Mrs Cross    	Mr Berry  	Ms MacDonald
 Ms Dundas     	Mrs Burke  	Mr Pratt
 Ms Tucker     	Mr Corbell  	Mr Quinlan
          	Mr Cornwell  	Mr Smyth
        	Mrs Dunne  	Mr Stanhope
      		Ms Gallagher  	Mr Stefaniak
     		Mr Hargreaves  	Mr Wood
Question so resolved in the negative.

Motion negatived.

MR HARGREAVES (11.38): I move:

That the report be adopted.

Mr Speaker, for the information of members I refer to existing standing order 168(c), which reads:

On the calling on of the notice a Member shall present to the Assembly a printed copy of the bill signed by that Member and any associated explanatory memorandum.

This is a machinery measure to change the words "explanatory memorandum"to "explanatory statement". It is just purely and simply a technicality and I urge members to support the motion.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
