Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 07 Hansard (Thursday, 2 August 2018) . . Page.. 2611 ..
MR WALL (Brindabella) (11.32): Madam Assistant Speaker, I think there is now agreement on the motion that I moved earlier today to refer the procurement amendment bill to a committee.
Mr Barr: I am not sure that there is.
Mr Coe: We are supporting the amendment.
Mr Barr: I think there might have been a question over which committee.
MR GENTLEMAN (Brindabella—Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Minister for the Environment and Heritage, Minister for Planning and Land Management and Minister for Urban Renewal) (11.32): I move:
Omit “25 October 2018”, substitute “end September 2018”.
MR RATTENBURY (Kurrajong) (11.33): Madam Assistant Speaker, we will be supporting this amendment, and I am pleased that there is agreement. I seek your clarification as to whether we need to be express in allowing the committee to report out of session rather than having to come back and amend this later. I presume that at the end of September we will not be sitting and that we will need to authorise the committee to report via the Speaker.
MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER (Ms Lee): The advice that I have just received from the Clerk is that there will be an opportunity in the September sittings to fix that up.
Debate (on motion by Mr Barr) adjourned to a later hour.
