Estimates 2011-2012—Select Committee


Debate resumed from 29 June 2010, on motion by Mr Smyth:

That the report be noted.

MR SMYTH (Brindabella) (2.39 am), in reply: It is only 20 to three, and there are two items to go. I have 10 minutes to speak on each of them. I could keep speaking and take us out to 3 o’clock, but that would be unnecessarily cruel. So I will simply say thank you to the members of the committee who helped put together a fine report. I would like to thank all those who attended, the ACT public servants and indeed the consultants for that mammoth hearing that day when we had 20 people at the table, which was quite unusual and does get one thinking about the size of some of the facilities in the Assembly. I say a very special thanks to the staff in my office, who kept my sanity throughout the period, and particularly again a great thanks to the staff of the Committee Office for the work they did in herding it all together and making the process work.

With that, I commend to the Assembly the Select Committee on Estimates 2011-2012 report on the Appropriation Bill 2011-2012.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
