Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 8 Hansard (19 August) . . Page.. 2779 ..
MR WOOD (continuing):
satisfied with the information provided, a quote will be issued and groups will be provided with a firm proposal for insurance.
Any concern about litter should be reported to the city management hotline.
MR SMYTH (Leader of the Opposition): Mr Speaker, I seek leave to make a personal explanation.
MR SPEAKER: Please proceed.
MR SMYTH: Persistently, throughout question time, the Chief Minister tried to characterise the opposition as not having any policies-
MR SPEAKER: Is this a personal explanation, Mr Smyth?
MR SMYTH: It is. I refer him to page 1,237 of the notice paper, which clearly has a sentencing reform amendment bill on it, a corrections reform amendment bill on it and, throughout the last two years, we have talked about things like mental health policy for a time-out facility and the public liability package which was tabled in this place. We have raised the issue of the film industry and we have told the government how to address the waiting lists-
MR SPEAKER: I think you had better personalise this quickly, or I am going to sit you down.
MR SMYTH: Therefore we are not a policy free zone, Mr Speaker.
