Statement by Assistant Speaker

MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER (Ms Lawder): Yesterday I undertook to review the Hansard in relation to certain comments made by the Leader of the Opposition during the debate on the motion of no confidence in a minister. Having reviewed the transcript and considered the matter, I do not consider that the words spoken implied an imputation. Debates on no confidence motions are, by their nature, very robust, and whilst the words used were somewhat provocative I do not consider their use in the context of yesterday’s debate an imputation of improper motive as set out in standing order 55.

Government—infrastructure projects

MS FITZHARRIS (Molonglo) (4.21): I move:

That this Assembly:

(1) notes that as Gungahlin has grown and developed as one of the ACT’s newest regions the ACT Government has made significant investment in:

(a) education, health and community infrastructure and services;

(b) recreation infrastructure and services;

(c) roads and municipal infrastructure;

(d) generating employment in the Gungahlin Town Centre through the construction of the ACT Government office block; and

(e) public transport, especially in Capital Metro;
