MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Resume your seat, please, Ms Berry. Stop the clock, please.

Mr Wall: Can you please remind the member that all comments need to be directed through the chair and not to other members in this place?

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Ms Berry, I remind you that all your comments must directed through the chair.

MS BERRY: Thanks for that reminder. I must be learning some bad habits from those opposite.

I am looking forward to talking to the documents that will be tabled as a result of this amendment to the motion later today. It will be to wonderful to hear the “no plan” the Liberals have for the ACT and for the region and of all the fantastic work the submitters and witnesses contributed to the regional development committee hearings. I keep using the words “dismissive” and “disrespectful”, because that is exactly what it is. Yet again the Liberals have shown that they do not have a plan and they do not care.

They were really lazy about the time they spent on the committee—playing politics, not paying attention to what people were saying when coming up with ideas about what we can do for this city and this region. They did not want to play a part in it and I find that disappointing. I support the amendment, and I commend the amendment and the motion to the Assembly.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Amendment agreed to.
