Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 12 Hansard (18 November) . . Page.. 4237 ..
MR HARGREAVES (continuing):
So, Mr Deputy Speaker, I would like again to thank you personally for your support for the introduction of Labor Party policy; it is a brilliant thing that you have done. You will indeed go down in history for being a mascot of the Australian Labor Party and we are really pleased to have you on board.
I would also like again to say that I do not believe this side of the house will support an adjournment so that people can think about it, and I would urge those opposite to follow our lead. This is a piece of housekeeping and we should either do it or not do it. It does not take a lot of thinking to work it out.
That the report be adopted.
The Assembly voted-
Question so resolved in the affirmative.
