Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2017 Week 09 Hansard (Thursday, 24 August 2017) . . Page.. 3355 ..

Mrs Jones interjecting—

MR GENTLEMAN: I can say—as I have said—we will support ACT Policing in both resources and legislative terms to ensure they do the best job on the ground.

Opposition members interjecting

MR GENTLEMAN: It is important to congratulate ACT Policing on the work they do.

Opposition members interjecting

MR GENTLEMAN: The reason they meet motorcycle gangs when they come to the ACT is because we have asked them to do that work.

Mrs Jones interjecting—

MR GENTLEMAN: We have asked them to interfere. The CPO has asked her officers to intervene, and that is exactly what they are doing.

MADAM SPEAKER: Before I go to Mr Pettersson, I say to members opposite that if you ask a question I imagine you would be interested in the answer, and I do not know how you hear the answer with your constant interjections. I again refer people to standing order 117 around the construction of questions without notice.

Ms Lawder: Is there a standing order about non-answers?

MADAM SPEAKER: There is also standing order 118. I suggest to all members that perhaps in the break between now and September they can get a handle on both of them, particularly the one about interjections: when someone is on their feet they should not be interrupted. I think the members on that side would be most interested in that.

Access Canberra—assistance to business

MR PETTERSSON: My question is to the Minister for Regulatory Services. Can the minister outline what the government is doing to promote the diverse nightlife in Canberra?

MR RAMSAY: I thank the member for his question.

Mr Hanson interjecting—

MADAM SPEAKER: Mr Hanson, you are warned. I have been clear this week about the interjections from that side of the chamber.

MR RAMSAY: I note his recent engagement with the nightlife economy in Canberra through his encouraging young people to enrol in the upcoming postal survey. It is amazing what we can do with the nightlife here in Canberra.
