Members of the community recognise the work that has been done by the Canberra Liberals in listening to the legal community and trying to ensure that community standards are properly reinstated in relation to jury trials. I predict that we will continue to have problems and the attorney will be forced to return to this place and fix the mess that he has created today. If he does not, after 2012 the Canberra Liberals will.

Bill, as a whole, agreed to.

Standing and temporary orders—suspension

MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development, Minister for Territory and Municipal Services and Minister for Police and Emergency Services) (11.27): I move:

That so much of the standing and temporary orders be suspended as would prevent order of the day No 4, Executive business, relating to the Administrative (One ACT Public Service Miscellaneous Amendments) Bill 2011, being determined this sitting.

As foreshadowed at the government business meeting last week, the government indicated that we intend to declare this bill urgent or seek to exclude it from the operation of the standing orders in relation to the periods for sitting on the table, to allow it be debated cognately with the Public Sector Management (One ACT Public Service) Amendment Bill. The bill is technical and provides for the implementation of the effect of the public sector management bill through a range of technical amendments. I commend the motion to the Assembly.

Question resolved in the affirmative, with the concurrence of an absolute majority.
